All our helpers and leaders are volunteers and its not just about running activities with the children – we need people to fundraise, be on our Executive Committee, help out now and then and so on. Please think what you can do and get involved by volunteering with us.
Anyone over the age of 16 can volunteer with the Scouts. Volunteers are from every faith and social background and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved as a leader, assistant, instructor or administrator.
What can Scouting do for me?
No matter what, in Scouts you’ll gain the skills and experience you need in life – because we believe in working as a team, learning by doing and thinking for yourself.
But Scouts can also be a fun way to further your education and career. If you need work experience or volunteering hours for a college or university course or even a programme like The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, then volunteering for The Scout Association can help you get there.
Plus, there are opportunities to gain a National Open College Network qualification and get access to professional membership organisations such as The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and The Institute of Training and Occupational Learning (ITOL).
And, of course, if you love adventure, Scouting gives you the chance to regularly take part in activities that you otherwise might not be able to, such as travelling abroad, skiing, rock climbing, or abseiling.
