About Us

Who we are

Scouting in Solihull owes its amazing success to over 2,400 young people aged 6 to 18 years old developing skills for life working in partnership with nearly 600 adults. We are proud of everything that our young people achieve, from their first night away from home on a Beaver sleepover, to parading at Windsor Castle having achieved their Queen’s Scout Award.
 
A young person’s Scouting journey can start from just before their 6th birthday in the Beaver section. At 8 years old they can join Cubs, moving on to Scouts when they reach 10 1/2. Then it’s Explorers from the age of 14 until their 18th birthday when they can join Network. There’s lots more information about all of these stages of Scouting on the main website www.scouts.org.uk.
 
We welcome adults into a wide variety of roles and none of them demand a weekly commitment! All of our volunteering roles are flexible, whether its being part of the team running one of the sections, or as part of the Exec committee providing support and governance to the leaders. If you or your child would like to get involved, then please let us know by completing this short form
 
We have 24 Scout groups in Solihull, spread all across the Borough. We also have 12 Explorer units and 2 Network units. As well as all the activities that the groups and units do, there are a number of larger scale events that are arranged to bring groups and units together, sharing skills and making new friends. These events include hiking, cooking, camping, football, swimming, kayaking, model building and quizzes. 
 
Everything we do is aimed at developing our young people’s resilience, ability to work as part of a team and to develop their leadership skills ready for their future life as part of our wider community. As Scouts we believe in bringing people together, celebrating diversity and standing against intolerance. We’re proud of being part of a worldwide movement which is creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.
