Volunteering for Scouting is one of the most fun, rewarding and positive things you can ever do. You can give as much or a little time you like and we will match opportunities that fit your skills and time available. If you would like to have fun and make friends, earn professional qualifications and make a real difference to the lives of young people please volunteer with us.

We are run entirely by volunteers who give up their own time to help us. There are two main types of volunteers:  Uniformed Volunteers/Leaders and the Boards of Trustees. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.

All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead a section week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills.

‘For anyone thinking of becoming a Scout, I say, go for it, come and join the big adventure.’

Bear Grylls, UK Chief Scout
