Adult Volunteers

Scouting depends on volunteers like you!

  • There are many roles in Scouting so we can use many different skills.
  • Anyone over 18 can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting. There is no upper age limit.
  • Volunteering is flexible.  You can decide how much time you can give.
  • We will provide training and support. So no experience of Scouting is necessary.
  • You will meet new people and learn new things.
