Each week, Scouting helps over 460,000 young people develop the skills to succeed in life. But this can only happen thanks to our brilliant volunteers.
Volunteering is easier than you think. Whether you can spare an hour a month or a day a year, we have hundreds of opportunities both behind the scenes and directly supporting young people. With full support and training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis.
Not only is it incredibly rewarding and great fun, you’ll learn some brilliant skills transferable to the workplace and further education.
We welcome volunteers from every community and background. You don’t need to have been a Scout.
You just need to believe in a more positive future and the difference we can make together.
Volunteer today and help us prepare more young people with Skills for Life.
If you or your child want to join Beavers, Cubs or Scouts, then please check out our meeting times and other information on the ‘parents page‘ first. Please note that our waiting lists are open to children aged 4 or older.
We’re sorry but not everyone who joins the list will get a place as we don’t have room for everyone. We also fill places according to some priorities, set out here.
If you want to guarantee a place for your child, the best way to do this is to join our team of leaders to at least Assistant Leader level. This doesn’t mean committing to being there every week, but does mean getting a clear Disclosure/DBS check, completing some very basic training (3 short mostly online modules), joining leaders’ meetings about once a term and being involved in sessions most weeks.

Remember to let us know if you are willing to help – there’s an email link in the waiting list confirmation email.
