Volunteer

You don’t have to be an outdoor adventurer like Bear Grylls, to get involved with Scouting. We all have useful skills and can volunteer and in a number ways, all of which impart vital skills on to our young people. As well as passing on skills, Scouting offers you the opportunity to build on your existing skills or learn new ones.

Volunteering is easy, fun and flexible – You could  help out at a one or 2 meetings a term as an Occasional Helper or come along to our weekly meetings as a Section Assistant or Assistant Leader. All of the roles require a background check (DBS) and  some training (dependant on role) but a section leader can explain all of this to you.

As long as you’re over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer, there is no upper age limit; for those aged between 14 to 18, there is the option of becoming a Young Leader.

Are you up to the Challenge? Below are the roles we currently need volunteers for; if these don’t suit you but you would still like to offer support/help then please speak to a Leader or contact us via the form on the Join Us page.
