About Us

Greenspaces, The Solent, Hamble and a stone’s throw from The New Forest

Fareham is located between the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton in south east Hampshire. Fareham West District includes Stubbington and Hill Head, Titchfield, Park Gate, Locks Heath, Sarisbury Green, Warsash and Whiteley. We are really lucky to have access to The Solent and The River Hamble and we are proud to have two very successful Royal Navy recognised Sea Scout groups who regularly sail, row, paddleboard, kayak and canoe on arguably some of the best water in the south. The New Forest and Ferny Crofts, the home of Hampshire Scouting, is a short distance away.

District leadership

Leading Scouting in the District is the District Commissioner who is accountable to the District Scout Council.

The current District Commissioner was appointed in January 2020 and a core team of Assistant District Commissioners (ADCs), Managers and Advisers support the delivery of a quality programme. These include the District Explorer Scout Commissioner (DESC) and District Youth Commissioner (DYC), Group Scout Leaders (GSL’s), the Duke of Edinburgh Award Team and other specialist roles. Also there’s the District Training Manager who is responsible for a team of Training Advisers.

The District Executive, comprising of elected, nominated and co-opted trustees whose officers consist of the Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, manage all the administrative affairs of the District which include finances, insurance and compliance.

In summary, a team of dedicated volunteers providing professional services to support our Amazing Leaders.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
