Our volunteers are our everyday heroes

Volunteers make Scouting great. We bring together people of all ages (18+, no maximum age), backgrounds, and skillsets with one common aim. Teaching skills for life.

As well as building CV skills, volunteering in Scouting will give you a chance to learn. Not just from the other adults but from the young people we help. Their is a role for everyone, and every adult in Scouting is offered training to help them succeed. The only requirement is enthusiasm.

Our Leaders and Section Assistants work as a team to plan and run an exciting and varied programme for the over 120 young people across our five sections.

All of our Leaders come from different backgrounds, some have been in scouting since they were 6 years old, while others started helping when their children joined and caught the Scouting bug.

The upshot is that it doesn’t matter what experience you have. You can offer something new to our team as we inspire the next generation.

Our Group Trustee Board work behind the scenes to manage the group and our hall.

We have 2 key members: a Chair and Treasurer who are supported by a number of other adult members. 

Between them, they organise fundraising events, coordinate where we spend our funds, deal with hall maintenance, and generally make sure we have the facilities and resources to teach skills for life.

Everyone has a personal life, so we understand that you may not be able to commit to certain hours or days of the week. That’s why we offer flexibility in everything we do.

Whether you’re involved once a week, once a month or only a couple of times a year, and whether you work directly with our young people or you take on a behind the scenes role with our Trustee Board or hall maintenance teams, you can know that you are making a difference. Supporting the next generation.

All our activities are run by volunteers, who might join us because they want to: 

  • Try something new
  • Make friends 
  • Spend time with their children – or gain experience with young people
  • Do something good for their community and themselves
  • Keep their bodies and brains active and happy – whether that’s by scaling mountains, sharing skills or serving tea 
  • A warm welcome
  • Flexibility to get involved in a way that works for you
  • Easy access to training and resources online
  • Friendly ongoing support from local volunteers

No two weeks are the same, but the impact you make is always great.

All end up making a huge difference to young people’s lives – gifting them with skills for life, and learning a whole lot about themselves along the way.
