Who are we?

For over 100 years, 5th Holme Valley (Meltham) have been providing Scouting to the young people in and around the Meltham area of West Yorkshire. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.

As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. Each week, The Scouts give over 460,000 young people the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future. We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.

We’re a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures. We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always.



5th Holme Valley (Meltham) Scout Group is part of The Scout Association within the United Kingdom.

Charity numbers: 306101 (England and Wales) and SC038437 (Scotland).

Our Goals

Our plan is to build on the success of the previous plan: to continue to grow, become more inclusive, to be shaped by young people and to make a bigger impact in our communities. We have set new goals for 2025.


As a movement, we have grown for the last 13 years. We want to continue that positive trend, bringing skills for life to more young people across the UK


Scouts is open to all. We now have over 102,000 girls and have started 834 sections in areas of deprivation since 2013. We believe it’s a priority to reflect the diversity of the communities we are in.

The Sections

There are 6 sections to choose from within Scouting. Starting at 4 years old up to 25 years old.
