SEN Child Joining Cubs, Scouts or Explorers

This page is specifically inviting young people with Special Educational Needs to join one of our scouting sections dedicated to this. Osborne Scout Troop and Jupiter Explorers are already established and welcoming new joiners. With enough volunteers we can, in time, also set up a Cub section.

Our policy for prioritising membership applications is in the following descending order:

1.Children of uniformed leaders (Leaders, Assistant Leaders and Section Assistants)

2.Children attending Osborne or Shepherds Down SEN Schools

    Because Osborne Scouts and Shepherds Down Cubs focuse on children with special educational needs, we need a higher number of adult leaders than is normal. Most parents are uniformed Leaders. We are constantly needing more Leaders as children join because the more Leaders we have the easier it is; and the easier it is, the more fun we have; and the more fun we have as adults, the more fun the Scouts and Cubs have! Please indicate below if you are prepared to become a Uniformed Leader


    If you have said yes, we will contact you to set up a meeting.
