We’re a friendly family (both real and imagined) and always happy to welcome new adult volunteers.
A sense of humour helps but other than that all you need to get started is enthusiasm and a Scout DBS clearance.
The Scout Association’s award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults can get as much from Scouts as young people.
Our approach focuses on what you want to get out of volunteering with Scouts, while respecting how much time you can offer.
Over 90% of Scout volunteers say that their scouting skills and experiences have been useful in their work or personal life.
The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) is an official background check which helps to prevent unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups, including children. It replaces the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).
Every adult Scout volunteer, including occasional helpers and anyone who wishes to camp with us MUST have an enhanced DBS Certificate obtained through the Scout Association.
You do not have to pay for this; we will make the application on your behalf.
