If you would like help to find a place in Scouting at another nearby Scout Group please visit Swindon Scouts. If you live in south Swindon please visit Swindon Ridgeway Scouts.

Scouting is open to all and we welcome girls and boys and everyone from all backgrounds.

With regard to our waiting list we offer places according the below order of priority

  1. Those who are already a member at 1st Swindon who are due to progress to the next section.
  2. Then, subject to places being available and the young persons age
    • Beavers / Cubs / Scouts / Explorers: Those who have been on the waiting list the longest.

NB Please note in order to gain the most from the Scouting programme young people may not be offered a place where they would join a section part the way through the programme. Should a young person not be offered a place in a section we will look to offer a place in the next section when the young person is old enough to join.

Adult volunteers

1st Swindon Scout Group is a voluntary organisation and is dependant on adults giving up their time and energy to ensure the continued success of the Scouting movement both here in Swindon and across the world.

Our adult volunteers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and bring many different skills to the organisation.

If you would like to join us or have skills to offer please click here to contact the Group.
