Get in touch

At present we are unable to receive incoming phone calls to the Scout Information Centre on our usual numbers.

Our temporary phone number is 020 8181 3159.

We are working with our suppliers to restore the full service as soon as possible.



The Scout Information Centre is open from 8am–7pm weekdays and 9am–12pm on Saturdays.

Whether you need an idea for your section programme, have a query about a rule or Scouting policy, need to report an accident, are looking for an overseas Scouting contact, or anything else, our team of Information Centre Advisers will be happy to help.
