You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to volunteer…

We’ve already got one Chief Scout and he’s brilliant. What we need now are smilers and inspirers, activity planners and Zoomers – all round team players to support our young people.


Skills for life

Put your skills to use, learn new ones and play an active role in your local community.

Flexible Volunteering

You shape what you do and how much time you can give. Scouts happens when a lot of us give a little time.


Full Support and Training

We’re with you every step of the way with a recognised training plan and a role that looks great on your CV. You don’t need to have to be a Scout or an expert in outdoors to volunteer.

Fully Inclusive

We’re Scouts and everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. You can expect a warm welcome whoever you are.


It’s good for you.

We rely on people like you playing their part to give young people the opportunities they need. 

But volunteering’s not just about giving something back. It’s also about doing something that’s good for you.

Volunteering gives you career-boosting skills, improves your wellbeing, and helps you make connections with friends, family and your local community.

Whether you want to support young people or if you’re more comfortable planning an adventure from the sidelines, we’ve got a role for you.

Scouts happens when a lot of us give a little. You’re not signing up for a lifelong commitment – just to help out, when and where you can. 

And volunteering’s a two-way street. Research shows that it improves your wellbeing and helps you build career-boosting skills. Let us know you’re interested, and we’ll give you any support and training you need to let your skills shine.


"As a Cub leader, watching our brand new Cubs come from Beavers; teeny tiny and unsure of themselves, developing into confident capable young people ready to take on anything is the BEST! "

Amy, Cub Leader – 1st Basingstoke

"I love knowing that I am helping to shape young people into becoming better people"

Jane, Group Scout Leader – 11th Basingstoke

"Witnessing a young person face adventure and challenge boasted by their peers and the leaders... nothing beats it - well, apart from a sea of tired Cub faces round a campfire after a thrilling weekend away of course! "

Amy, District Cub Leader
