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.

We create websites that recruit new members, encourage adults to volunteer, and engage existing members, volunteers and parents.
From our Liverpool HQ, we work with District and Division teams across the UK and worldwide. We create bespoke, functional, and beautifully designed websites for the Scouting and Girlguiding community that solve everyday problems, whether that’s recruiting new members and volunteers, or engaging with existing members, leaders and parents.
Every District and Division is different, which is why we work closely with you on your ideas and requirements, and transform them into a website that will solve problems and accelerate growth. Some Districts have a small number of Groups, and some have thousands of members and volunteers to cater for. 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 Districts and Divisions, we also create websites for Sections & Groups, as well as Counties & Regions, 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.
“Developing a new District website was a daunting thought for many members of the District, but Scout Websites did everything – with almost no time or effort for the members of our team! The best part was that we could completely trust their team to develop a website that met our needs and include what we wanted to achieve with our online presence to support our members and help recruit more adults and young people. Their work has made a significant difference to our online presence. We have already seen an increase in the number of our members and the public engaging with the site and making enquiries. When it comes to web site development there are so many companies that talk a good game, but Scout Websites understand our needs as Scouts and their team made our vision a reality!”Royal Greenwich District
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 to assist you with keeping them and parents engaged, from members information to information about Activity Centres. 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.
