Everyday heroes

What we need now are smilers and inspirers, activity planners, all round team players to support our young people. The good news is you shape what you do and decide how much time you give.

Scouts happen when a lot of us give a little (you don't have to be a Scout or outdoors expert to volunteer).
Scouts is needed now more than ever. The pandemic has hit our young people hard, with a big percentage saying it has impacted on their mental health. Having people positive role models to guide the way, and give that extra bit of encouragement is so important in times like these. We help young people step up, speak and find their place in the world. We help them gain skills for life.
We encourage people of all genders, age, race and individual backgrounds, to become a volunteer and help.

What do Volunteers do?

Whether you join us to directly support young people, or behind the scenes, as a volunteer manager, treasurer or fund raiser, we'll match you with a role that suits the skills you have to share and those you'd like to gain. We're talking about tea makers, tidy-uppers and skill sharers. We're talking about mini bus drivers and first aiders. We're talking about students who want to boost their CV, and parents who volunteer so they can spend more time together as a family.

Whatever your skill set, lend a hand for as little or as much time as you can spare, and we promise you'll get more out than you put in. Because whether you're helping a leader to run an activity in the local town hall, organising a night away, or buttering slices of bread for a group of very hungry eleven year olds, no two Scout meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.

 Trust the Scouts

You're in Good Hands.

When I became Chief Scout in 2009, it was one of the proudest moments of my life.

With every passing day since, I've become even more inspired by the dedication of our leaders and volunteers, who tirelessly prepare young people with skills for life.
