Become a Volunteer

Can you make us truly awesome?

Our Roles

All of our roles come with training and plenty of support. You don't need any previous experience in scouting as our team will help you get started and share their passion with you along your volunteering journey.

You can start your volunteer journey by emailing

Sectional Assistant

Our sectional assistants are a key part of the team working with young people. New volunteers complete a few short online modules of adult training and get involved in running games and organising activities. Its a role that can be flexible, it doesn't matter if you can't attend every week.

Occassional Helper

This is our most flexible role as a volunteer, there's no commitment to training or to wear uniform and we'll call on you when we need your support. This could be because you have a specific skill or interest or it could be that you've agreed to come to camp with us.

Becoming an occasional helper is a great way to dip your toe into scouting.

Executive Member

Our executive members manage the group behind the scenes and form our trustee body. The group works very much like a school governing body working to support the adult volunteer team to deliver skills for life ensuring the group has the policies and resources in place to deliver safe and active scouting. As a group executive member, you could be looking after group accounts, fundraising or simply offering great advice.

Section Leader / Assistant Section Leader

An assistant section leader is able to take the lead to take groups of young people out and about. Assistant section leaders complete around 15 modules of training, although a lot of the training is on the job. An assistant section leader role is a great place to really develop your skills and feel the reward of changing the lives of our young people.

Other Roles

We're also looking for skills instructors, gardeners, fundraisers, mechanics, organisers, administrators and accountants to name but a few roles. Whatever the skills and time you can offer, we can find a role to fit.
