Volunteers (14+)

Share your skills, gain new ones.

Whether you are an ex-member, parent of a Young Person or someone totally new to Scouting you’ve come to the right place! As a diverse and inclusive Scout Group we welcome people from all backgrounds to join our Scout Group and there is not a typical Scout Leader – part of what makes Scouting so successful is the wide variety of backgrounds our Leaders come from. Every Leader has their own skills and experience and you never know when these skills might come in handy.

Why Volunteer?

There are many reasons why adults might volunteer to get involved with Scouting. Here are just a few reasons:

"Having been through Scouts all the way through from Beavers to Explorers and completed the Young Leader scheme it only seemed like the natural progression to become a Leader and give my time back after all the time the Leaders who have led me gave to my time in Scouting"
"To help ensure our son's and daughter's get to experience Scouting"
"To develop my own skills and do something practical"
"To live a healthier and more active lifestyle"
"To enjoy and rediscover adventure for myself"

What do Scouts do?

Sections usually meet on one evening a week, although they do also attend camps and other days out throughout the year.

Whilst the activities vary by age group, each Section gives Young People the opportunity to learn by doing.

Leaders are fully trained to deliver this programme, ensuring that everyone involved enjoys themselves but also stays safe.
