Sandwell is one of ten Scout Districts in West Mercia. Our District has eleven Scout Groups, based in Oldbury, Smethwick, Rowley Regis, Tividale, Tipton, West Bromwich and Great Barr.

Scouting is open to everyone: we welcome new members from the age of six, with no upper age limit for our adult volunteers. Scouting is open to both boys and girls and it makes no difference what background you come from, what language you speak, or what religion you are – within Scouting there is a place for everyone.

The Purpose of Scouting is to contribute to the development of young people and help them to reach their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities. This website contains lots of useful information for both members and potential members.
