Have you met our team?
Our team of 14 work from offices overlooking the Royal Albert Dock in Liverpool. We've all been involved in Scouts & Girlguiding in the past, and some hold volunteer roles currently.

Need to recruit adults? Looking for adult training to be booked online? We create websites that increase membership and improve engagement.
Although we’re based at the heart of Liverpool’s waterfront, we work with County, Regional and Area teams across the UK and worldwide. We create bespoke, functional, and beautifully designed websites for the Scout and Girlguiding community that solve everyday problems, whether that’s recruiting new members and volunteers, or communicating with and engaging existing members, leaders and parents.
Every County, Region or Area is different, needs slightly different branding, and is a different size in terms of membership and adult volunteers, with a different team structure! We work closely with you on your ideas and requirements, and transform them into a website that will solve problems and accelerate growth. We’ve worked with the biggest County in the UK, and islands with a tiny amount of Groups. You may be looking to us because you haven’t got a website, or you may be looking to make your current website on-brand and more useful.
Alongside working with Counties, Regions and Areas, we also create websites for Sections & Groups, as well as Districts & Divisions, and Campsites & Activity Centres, so have excellent understanding when it comes to designing a website with user experience in mind, and developing it all in WordPress (an easy to use content management system).
The ability to edit your website yourself once we’ve gone live is key. We support you and the rest of your team as you become familiar with the website and we’re always on hand to answer any questions you may have and offer tips and tricks throughout the process.
Our pages are developed in bespoke templates meaning you’re able to add and remove pages easily, as well as change any content, from text and images to news, events, and downloads. And if you have parts of the site that are only for certain members, we can add password protection to any page you’d like to be hidden with just a few clicks!
As another bonus, we’ll also build everything responsively so that it works and looks great across any device from mobile to desktop and is completely thumb-friendly. This is essential in the smartphone age where over 60% of browsing is now done on a mobile phone or tablet.
“We are absolutely delighted with the result and would not hesitate to recommend Scout Websites to anyone else looking to either have a web presence or refresh an older site. Feedback from our leaders is fantastic and we have seen an upturn in enquiries since launch from young people wishing to join!”Surrey Scouts
We work on all sizes of projects, but we can imagine that you’re looking for a website that’s easy to manage, with dynamic news, events and photo/video areas, as well as being useful for your current members and leaders to assist you with keeping them engaged, from members information to information about Activity Centres and adult training – perhaps even the ability to book online. You’ll also probably want to recruit new members through your website. Let us know what you want, and we’ll make it.
Hosting and domain name fees are included as part of the cost, so you don’t have to worry about paying for these either. Whatever your budget is, and even if you don’t have one, come and speak to us. We’ll be able to help you out and advise on different payment plans, options and cost. Of course, if you’d like to meet with the team in person, that’d be fantastic too!
We understand that you’re a volunteer, and time is limited. Once you choose to work with us, we’ll keep in touch with you through our easy to use communication platform (BaseCamp) where you can upload content, documents, photos and anything else you’d like on your website. You’ll see your website as it’s created and we won’t launch your site until you love it.
If you’re a County with a few Districts and Groups that are also in need of a new or upgraded website, we can offer packages that include a very good discount if you buy in bulk – just chat to us.
