What we do
Houghton-le-Spring Scout District (part of Durham Scout County) provides support to six scout groups, three explorer scout units and two after school clubs in the Hetton, Houghton and Washington areas of the City of Sunderland.

Scout Groups at Eppleton, Houghton, Herrington, Fatfield, North Washington and Washington Village along with North and South Explorers, Young Leaders and After School Clubs, make up over 750 members.

The district has grown year on year since 2001 and is managed by an enthusiastic group of trustees who form its executive who embarked on an ambitious development plan.

The growth has been sustained into 2013 and recently we employed a development officer who developed this work.

We expect our membership to rise again through 2013 as we open a new group and sections to meet the demand for scouting locally.
