Are you ready to help us inspire a generation of young people to experience fun, friendship and real adventure?


The definition of a volunteer is someone that ‘gives their time freely for the benefit of others’. The Scout Association is an organisation made up of volunteers who give freely of their time because they are committed to the aims and principles of the Movement and enjoy working with and helping to develop young people in our informal educational context.

Scouting is made up of many different types of volunteers some are members, some are supporters and others are parents or young people wanting to do something to help achieve the aims of the Movement. Some are not even aware that they are doing this whilst others view this as their lifetimes challenge.

With basic facilities and volunteer support, Scouting provides life-changing opportunities and adventure to both young people and adults. When someone talks to us about volunteering, we find a role that fits with their time and skills. If that means an hour a month, then we’ll work out how we can make the most of that. Most importantly, we’ll work hard to make that one hour enjoyable and meaningful for the volunteer too.  Our volunteers get involved on their terms and not all roles involve working with young people

So, If you can give a little time (or a lot) to help improve young lives in your community, we’d love to hear from you.
