ADULTS IN SCOUTING
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.

- Volunteering with children or young people directly

- Volunteering with a particular skill or hobby
