It really goes without saying that adults are the lynchpin of the Scouts. Without adults scouting would simply not exist. Scouts is about everyday people working as leaders and supporters in their communities, giving young people confidence, a sense of purpose, life values and outdoor skills that are hard to find anywhere else – we call this ‘skill for life!’ Adults in scouting are from all walks of life. The one thing they share is the enjoyment of working together and helping young people reach their potential.
All our volunteering opportunities are based on a flexible volunteering model, meaning that if you are unable to make the meeting its fine, we don’t expect everyone to be available every week. It's still Scouts, whether you’re involved once a week, once or twice a month, every six or eight weeks or even once or twice a year; and whether you are in the thick of activities with a group of young people or working behind the scenes in a management, trustee or support role.
We're scouts and everyone's welcome here. We'd love you to join our team of go-getters, doers and give-it-a-goers. Find out how you can make ‘scout nights’ even better. Everyone has something to offer to support local scouting, So, whatever your age or ability we have a role that will suit you and not all our roles involve working with young people so there are many ways you can get involved and help make a difference.
