Our Special Educational Needs (SEN) Cub Pack and Scout Troop are mainly for the young people of the two schools, many of whom come from beyond Winchester. With the agreement of the schools and the Group Scout Leader, both sections are also open to membership by young people with SEN from across the Winchester area.

Scouting has always been an inclusive movement for young people. We achieve inclusivity through the adoption of the 'reasonable adjustment' principle. You can find out more about this by clicking on Inclusivity & SEN at the bottom of the left hand vertical menu bar opposite.

As for all scout parents, we ask that you agree to undertake some adult role. Many hands make light work! This is how we provide the very best for our young people. We are a voluntary organisation and need parents, friend and teachers to volunteer for uniform leader, non-uniform charity trustee (Group Exec) and Activity Instructor roles. You can see the various roles under the ADULT TEAM LEADER and POSITIONS VACANT icons opposite. In some Groups there are over 150 such roles. Everyone has something to offer!

Right now, we occupy the warm nest of the 1st Winchester (Weeke & Harestock) Scout Group. We do this as 'satellite sections' whilst we develop our capabilities and strength as an adult team. In due course we need to fly their nest and be a Scout Group in our own right. This is how we will provide the very best Scouting possible for our young people. Please help and agree to be a >flexible volunteer. Just hit the CONTACT US icon if you would like to help in some way. You could be a parent, and existing leader or an Explorer Young Leader. We would like to hear from all of you!
