Scouting from Home

Given new guidance from the Prime Minister, we have suspended all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events for the time being.

You will no doubt be aware that the Coronavirus situation continues to develop around the world and the Prime Minister has announced that everyone in the UK should now avoid non-essential travel and contact with others. The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority. That is always at the heart of our decision making. Given this new guidance, we have suspended all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events for the time being.

We have set up a dedicated web page at to keep you up to date on the latest developments and where we will post some fun activities for young people to do at home with their parents if families are faced with self-isolation.

We would like to say thank you to all our amazing Scout volunteers.
They have taken a calm and measured approach to this situation along with continuing to ensure that young people and adults stay safe.

Coronavirus - Stay Home
Supporting Young People through Covid 19

Many of our young people are anxious about Covid 19.

We have collated some resources here which you may wish to share with families. These include pictures, signs and symbols to help make them accessible for all.

More resources and support about helping young people transition back into Scouting will follow, when we know when that seems likely to be.

We prepare young people with skills for life

We help over 10900 members right across Derbyshire!
And it's not just young people who can get in on the action. Working alongside our youth members are adult volunteers, with a huge variety of roles and opportunities available. We believe young people deserve the employability, character and practical skills to succeed. We believe in bringing people together to enjoy fun, friendship and adventure in a place where they can belong.

On this site, you will find details of our local groups, activity centres, forthcoming events and latest news. If you would like more information on Scouting in Derbyshire, please use the "Contact Us" link on the menu or via the Contact form.
