Skills for Life

Gateshead Scouts change lives for the better by offering all young people fun, adventurous and challenging activities, unique experiences and everyday adventure.

Welcome to Gateshead District

We are Gateshead Scouts, part of the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation.

Gateshead Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential through the development of important life skills, helping them to grow as individuals, to support their communities, to get jobs, to save lives and even to change the world.
