Get involved - Adult Volunteering

Adult Volunteering

The Scout Association is the UK's largest mixed youth organisation with more than 520,000 members.

We’re stronger than we’ve ever been, but we still need more volunteers to help bring Scouting to the thousands of young people waiting to join the adventure.

You don’t have to be a Scouting expert or an outdoors survival specialist to make a difference. Volunteers can help in many ways, from passing on first aid experience to teaching the young people how to cook.

Giving a little bit of time could help in a big way.

If you are interested in volunteering please use the contact form below (make sure you select Volunteering as the enquiry type).

Becoming a Beaver, Cub or Scout

Not many people know about the stars at night, how to sail a dinghy or make a sausage stew on a campfire, but you soon will! Scouting helps you learn lots of new and amazing skills – and you get to earn badges and rewards along the way.

Going to your Scout meetings is a chance to meet up with your mates, have a laugh and do lots of exciting activities.You'll meet adventurous people just like you who want to do something a little different.

From archery and acting to street sports and zorbing, being a Scout gives you the chance to get stuck into loads of activities you wouldn’t normally get to do.

As a Scout, you get to explore the big outdoors and travel to new places and try new things. Sounds better than being stuck in the house with nothing to do, right?
