We are looking for adult volunteers over the age of 18 years who are interested in working with young people between the ages of 6 and 14. In particular we need to build our team working with Beavers, aged 6-8 years. However, there are vacancies in all our sections as well as on our Trustee Board.

 We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated individuals. No experience is required, but a commitment to undertake our mandatory training is a must. The mandatory training is mainly online e-learning modules and support is given.

 All our adult volunteers must undergo enhanced DBS clearance which we provide free of charge.

 Our Beaver section meets on a Wednesday evening and volunteers would need to be available between the hours of 6-8 pm. They would be members of a team of leaders who work together to provide a fun and challenging programme for our young people. A love of the outdoors would be an advantage as this is a large part of our activities. As well as our weekly meetings, there are additional activities over some weekends including camping and sleepovers.

We are based at The Pavilion on the Park.

What skills do I need?

You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to join us. You don’t need to have been a Scout when you were younger. You don’t even need to know how to put up a tent. Our door is open to people of all ages, genders, races and backgrounds, and we’re only able to change lives because people like you lend a hand. We’re talking about tea makers, tidy-uppers and skill sharers. We’re talking about mini bus drivers and first aiders. We’re talking about students who want to boost their CV, and parents who volunteer so they can spend more time together as a family.

Whatever your skillset, lend a hand for as little or as much time as you can spare, and we promise you’ll get more out than you put in. Because whether you’re helping a leader to run an activity in the local town hall, organising a night away, or buttering 120 slices of bread a group of very hungry eleven year olds - no two Scout meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.

We provide the training. You show up, get stuck in, and make memories for life.

As long as you're over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting. There is no upper age limit for adult volunteers. If you are aged between 14 and 18, there is the option of becoming a Young Leader.

Sounds fun? Worthwhile? It is.
