You don’t have to be an adventurer like our Chief Scout, Bear Grylls, or Scout Ambassador, Steve Backshall, to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways. Have a read then phone Joe 07967676564 to see how you can make difference in your community.
Volunteering with us is easy, fun and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you. Whether you help out once a fortnight, month or term or just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play, and no matter how you get involved, we’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported.
As well as gaining externally recognised skills and having a brilliant time, Scouting also offers the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. A study found that over 90% of our volunteers believe that the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting have been of relevance to their working or personal lives.
Many of our helpers and leaders are parents of our youth members because they’ve seen firsthand how Scouting benefits young people and want to give something back. It’s also a chance to spend more time with your children and learn new skills. Speak to your child’s leader to discuss how you might become involved.
Scout Ambassadors: Tim Peake, Chris Evans, Julia Bradbury, Steve Backshall, Anita Rani, Ellie Simmonds OBE, Megan Hine, Dwayne Fields, Ed Stafford, Helen Glover MBE.
