About us

Wellingborough District is in the centre of Northamptonshire and comprises 15 groups (6 within Wellingborough and 9 in the surrounding villages. (including 1 sea scouts and 1 air scouts).

As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week, we help over 460,000 young people aged 6-25 enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.

We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We help young people develop and improve key life skills.

We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
