Welcome by the District Commissioner

Scouting is the largest youth organisation in the London Borough of Lewisham. There are 27 Scout groups and 6 explorer Scout units in our District providing everyday adventure for young people aged 6-25 every single night of the week.

At our Annual Census in January 2013, we registered 1667 members. Including all adults supporting Scouting, there are now over 1900 people involved in Scouting in Lewisham. This year the District grew by 8.65%. This accounts for 80% of the growth in South London, and 23.5% of growth across the entire Greater London Region.

This tells us that Scouting is growing at an extremely fast pace, and taking part in scouting in our District is fantastic. If it wasn’t, we wouldn’t have so many people joining so quickly!

Please take some time to view our website – there’s a load of information here for anyone interested in Scouting. There is information on the activities for all of our section’s , useful downloads for leaders, and an opportunity for you to stay connected with what we get up to. Follow us on Facebook, and check out what our District Mascot, Lewi the Lion, has been getting up to!
