Website Update

We have recently become aware of some technical issues with the background systems of this site, which amongst other things is causing the site to run slower than we would like.

We have therefore reluctantly decided to temporarily pause all updates to the site whilst our team of volunteers investigate and solve the issues.

Please see below for details of our progress, and in the meantime thank you for your patience whilst this necessary work takes place.

5th Apr 2024 – Content of Site locked down
                         Investigation started

8th Apr 2024 – Issues Identified
Resolutions underway


About us:

The National Scout and Guide Fellowship UK (NSGF UK) is the member organization of the International Scout and Guide Fellowship (ISGF) in the United Kingdom.

NSGF UK Component Associations are:

NSGF UK members are adults who are (or have been) Scouts or Guides, and those who accept the ideals and principles of the Scout/Guide movement.  We have members throughout the UK undertaking a variety of local, national and international activities for Scouting, Guiding, and their local communities.

Lord Baden-Powell said, “Scouting and Guiding is not only a game for children, it is also a way of life for adults”.

Don’t hold back your enthusiasm, if you have that, ‘Scout and Guide Spirit’ and would like to experience the fellowship and company of like-minded people, contact us today.

Members pay an annual subscription to NSGF UK which includes the ISGF fee. Members are kept in touch by regular NSGF Newsletters and through the websites of their respective organizations.
