Founded in 1923, the 23rd are one of the largest Scout Groups in Chingford. We offer fun, adventure and new skills to boys and girls age 6-14.

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.

Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

All Leaders are dedicated, committed and enthusiastic.  All are DBS checked and First Aid trained. We have parent helpers, and new volunteers are always welcome.
