Stretford District is located in the borough of Trafford, in Greater Manchester. We are one of the 8 Districts that form the Great Manchester West County. Within Stretford we have five Groups across the district, and these are 1st Stretford (Longford), 2nd Stretford (Gorse Hill), 17th Stretford (Quest), 23rd Stretford (St Matthews), and 25th Stretford (Firswood). Their location can be seen on our Groups Page


The Groups deliver a wide and varied structured programme of activities for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts (age range 6 to 14). There is great opportunity for young people to gain new skills and experiences in a controlled environment. For the age range of 14 to 18 we have Explorer Units across Stretford.

The District also puts on additional events to support the Groups programme and also to provide inter-Group competitions. Scouting in Stretford is firmly committed to coeducation so boys and girls can meet the aims of Scouting through one programme, and all our groups accept both boys and girls.
