About Us

Who we are

Wimbledon and Wandle Scout District is a local arm of the United Kingdom’s Scout Association. We have 16 Scout Groups providing a vibrant mix of age appropriate everyday adventure activities. Most of our groups have a full complement of Beaver, Cub & Scout sections along with Explorer Units & a Network section at district level.

Where we are

Wimbledon and Wandle Scout District is in the Scout County of Greater London South West. Geographically we cover the south-western quadrant of Greater London encompassing Wimbledon, Mitcham, Morden, Merton Park, Raynes Park and Motspur Park. Some of our groups meet in their own headquarters, some are church-based groups and one based in a community school.

What we do

We are part of the team who help 450,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures, to experience the outdoors, interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Working alongside our youth members are thousands of adult volunteers, with a huge variety of roles and opportunities available. Our district has approximately 1800 members including 6-25 year olds and adult volunteers. We have a fantastic programme of activities to suit all ages.

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