#SkillsForLife

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.
