Will I have to wear a uniform?
We are a uniformed organisation but the majority of our volunteers choose to wear either a polo shirt or hoodie to show they are part of the team.
Will I have to complete loads of training?
The Scout Association has an award winning training scheme available to all volunteers. The training requirement for the majority of roles in Scouting consists of two basic modules that can be completed online at home or with other volunteers locally.
Are volunteers DBS checked?
All adults working in Scouting complete a DBS check. This is quick and simple and can be arranged by us once you’ve started helping.
If I show an interest will I be chucked in the deep end?
No! You’ll be working with an established team of friendly volunteers and there will be loads of support.
If I volunteer can my child jump the waiting list?
Yes! Our activities have never been more popular and our waiting list continues to grow. We’d love to offer all these children places but we need more adults first! If you are happy to become a regular assistant/leader we would be able to offer your child the next available place.
