Few things are more rewarding than being involved in Scouting, and there are many ways you can join the adventure!
There are many ways you can kick-start your adventure, as a young person, parent or adult volunteer. Our volunteers get involved on their terms and not all roles involve working with young people. If you can give a little time (or a lot) to help improve young lives in your community, we'd love to hear from you.
Parents tell us that Scouting gives their children more confidence, responsibility, a broader set of friends, a chance to pursue things they might not get to do otherwise, adventure and an extended family.
Children learn social skills as well as practical ones. They have to remember things to bring the following week so they have to take a bit of responsibility for their own stuff!
When I see Ella at Cubs, doing things for herself and her friends, I'm so impressed. It helps you step back and let them get on with it.
Scouting helps parents prepare their kids for life.
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 contact us.
For anyone thinking of becoming a Scout, I say, go for it, come and join the big adventure.

Scouting is a charity, and great scouting requires sufficient funds - to run camps, purchase equipment, provide badges and so on. Please help us raise money so that we can continue to offer a high quality Scouting experience.
