Isle of Wight Scouts on Social Media

Here on the Island we’re very keen on using Social Media. In fact we’re quite chatty! We tend to use Facebook for spreading information about forthcoming events, reporting on events and to ask for opinions and get feedback on activities and events.

We’re on Twitter: if you are, you can follow us at     @iwscouts

We’ve got a very active Facebook group = /iwscouts and a number of other groups and pages at district, group and unit level. We’ve also got a public page recording progress of our Acess All Areas initiative. You’ll find details of all our Social Media sites in the lists below.

Ideally, we’d like to stick to national guidelines and not include any under-13 year olds on any of our Social Media sites, but then again, we’d rather they were learning to use Social Media responsibly in a controlled and monitored environment.


Find our websites at:


Find us on at

  • /groups/iwscouts     - closed group for County information for Scouts (over 13) and parents.
  • /iwscoutsactiveallareas   - the public face of our Access All Areas initiative
  • Wight Rovers media team  - secret group for the team to exchange information (team members can be under 13)


If your group isn’t on this list please mail me at and I’ll add your details.
