why volunteer

with us?

Whether you help out once a fortnight, month or term, or just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play. No matter how you get involved, we'll make sure you're properly trained and supported.


Our adult volunteers get just as much out of Scouting as our young people do. As well as helping young people to the adventure of Scouting, you’ll also have fun, make friends, develop new skills and have unforgettable experiences.

We can also help you develop your current skills and learn new ones. Volunteering in Scouting can enhance your CV or simply allow you to pursue your interest in a specific hobby.

what type of role could i do?


We have a wide range of volunteer roles - from casual helpers to leaders or trainers to minute takers. Whether it's working directly with the young people or behind the scenes, there is a role for you.  We also offer flexible volunteering, so we can fit around you and the time that you want to give to Scouting.

do i have the right skills?

You don't need to have previous experience in Scouting, just energy and enthusiasm.  We can match your existing skills with the right role and help you to develop new skills.

All of our adult volunteers receive full induction and ongoing training and support.  Our training has been recognised with a National Training Award by UK Skills and over 90% of our volunteers believe that the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting have been of relevance to their working or personal lives.

As long as you're over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting. There is no upper age limit for adult volunteers.
