We are the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.


Our Waiting List

We run a central waiting list for the group. Children can join the Beaver waiting list from their 5th birthday.

Unfortunately, due to the long waiting list, we are unable to accept children onto the waiting list who are aged 7 or over.

Once he/she is a member your child will be managed through each stage in the movement. Once finished in Scouts we will help you find a place in a District Explorer Scout Unit.

As the group is very strong there are times when youngsters can’t move from Beavers to Cubs or Cubs to Scouts and may have to spend some time “sitting out”. This is something we work hard to avoid.

If you want to register your child for the Beaver waiting list please contact:
Please give details of  your child’s name, address, date of birth and a phone number. Please note that we will not accept your child onto the Beaver waiting list until he/she has had their 5th birthday.

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