Adults Can Help

What do volunteers do?

Week by week, our leaders empower our young people to learn new skills, make new friends and stand on their own two feet. Our leaders are our everyday heroes. They shape young people’s lives for the better, and find out a whole lot about themselves in the process, too.

That’s where you come in

Our door is open to people of all ages, genders, races and backgrounds, and we’re only able to change lives because people like you lend a hand. We’re talking about skill sharers, tea makers and tidy-uppers . We’re talking about people who want to boost their CV (the Scout Association training scheme is a recognised qualification)

Whatever your skillset, lend a hand and we promise you’ll get more out than you put in. Because whether you’re helping leaders to run an activity in the local town hall or to organise a night away - no two Scout meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.

We provide the training. You show up, get stuck in, and make memories for life.

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. If you are aged between 14 and 18, there is the option of becoming a Young Leader.

Sounds fun? Worthwhile? It is.

Currently, we're looking for people to join us who have these skills:

  • Website editing
  • General property maintenance skills
  • Photography
