Volunteering with Scouts

Try new things, meet new people and make a difference today

Watch Nat's story to see how being a part of Scouts shapes lives 

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 

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.

But don't just take our word for it. Take theirs. 

If it wasn’t for Scouts, I think I'd have been spiralling down throughout this pandemic – I’ve made so many friends it’s unbelievable

I'm teaching my child things I value and that other children and other parents value as well – it's brought out something I never knew I had
