Skills for Life

Derby North has 11 Groups supporting Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. We have 3 District Explorer groups, District Network and Scout Active Support Unit.

Welcome to Derby North District

The Scouts 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.
