Welcome to Scouts UK

Need a website for your group, district or county?

Scouts UK provide basic web hosting completely free of charge, we can also offer advance hosting for a small monthly fee and includes our OSM plugin completely free. All our hosting packages also includes a free custom WordPress theme designed inline with the latest scout branding specifications.

Does your group use OSM?

Have a look at our NeoWeb Connector Plugin. The plugin will allow you to plug your OSM data right into any WordPress site – enabling groups, sections and districts to easily publicise OSM information and give members/parents an accessible platform on which to view badges, section programmes and events. With the latest version of the plugin you can also automatically submit new members to your waiting list.

Essentially anything that can be seen on OSM available right on your website.
