The Scouts keeps a record of all Group, District and County/Area/Region registrations.
To make sure our records are kept up-to-date, you’ll need to notify us if you're:
- Registering or closing a group or district
- Changing a group or district name, meeting place, sponsoring authority or group type
- Moving a group to a different district
- Amalgamating a group or district
All you need to do is fill in the relevant form, found on this page, approved by the appropriate Trustee Board.
Once completed, you can send this into us at email@example.com. We’ll update Compass for you, and file a permanent copy in our Heritage Collection.
Please complete the form digitally where possible, rather than printing and scanning a paper copy.
Sections at Group, District and County level can be registered, edited and closed directly in Compass without informing UK Headquarters.
Please contact Scouts if you’d like to make a change to a County level, or higher, registration.
