Discover skills and talents you never knew you had.

What is Scouting?

Other ways you can get involved


Want your child to experience the fun, friendship and adventure of Scouting? You’re not alone. As well as the chance to take part in a range of exciting activities, scouts learn other skills as well. A recent study showed that 87% of young people said that Scouting helped them to contribute to their communities as active citizens

There’s lot’s of ways you as a parent can be involved and support your child’s development without becoming a leader. For example helping out on a parent rota, being a trustee, driving a minibus, helping with maintenance or many other tasks!

Adult Volunteers

Week by week, our volunteers empower thousands of young people to learn new skills, make new friends and stand on their own two feet. They’re our everyday heroes. They shape young people’s lives for the better, and find out a whole lot about themselves in the process, too.

Today, there are nearly 60,000 young people on the waiting list to join us in the UK. We’re more relevant and more needed than ever, but it’s not always easy to keep up with the demand

That’s where you come in.

The opportunities to volunteer with us are flexible. Think of something you’d like to do and chances are it’s just what we require. Just fill in the simple form to start your volunteering journey
