Volunteer with us

You don’t need to be Bear Grylls or have been a Scout when you were younger. It is massively rewarding and well worth the effort.

If you would love to do more in the great outdoors then our Cubs and Scouts sections would really benefit from your help. Scouting is fun and our young people really want to be involved, they enjoy it and it is extremely rewarding to see.

You can help in many ways. If you have some time, and want to make new friends doing something really rewarding then please do get in touch.

What next?

It can be hard to put yourself forward when you don’t know what you are getting yourself into. You are welcome to take the 4 week test. Just come along for 4 weeks with no obligation and see if you like it.
Just contact us via this website or let your young persons section leader know.

Why Scouting is so Powerful

Bear Grylls has been Chief Scout for some time. If you really want to know more this 1/2 hour 2019 documentary gives you everything you need.

Its up to you based on how much time you offer

Occasional Helpers – Your help from time to time when you can. Perhaps you could cook sausages at an event, help with our grounds on a working  afternoon, come in and help young people with a topic you know well, or just join in your child’s regular meeting from time to time.

Regular Helpers and Committee Members – Perhaps you would like to help a bit more and can commit to helping once or twice each month. As a more regular helper we can plan what weeks you can come and help to make sure your help really counts. Alternatively, you could help with a committee role in fundraising, maintenance, or our administration.


Section Assistants – If you can attend 50% of meetings then this is a leader role but without the full commitment. You can chose whether you want to be invested and wear a uniform or not. You will have some basic training in safeguarding, safety and scouting.

Section Leaders – Our sections are led by a Section Leader working with one or more Assistant Section Leaders. These roles benefit from our award winning free training with modules delivered online, at fun training weekends, and in the evenings. This leads to a recognised management qualification  too.

Depending on the role our volunteers will require a DBS background check and certain roles will require a formal vetting procedure.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
