And did you know…?

You’d be joining over 100,000 other adult volunteering in UK Scouting right now including HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, Bear Grylls and Julia Bradbury.

The number of volunteers working for Scouting is bigger than the combined workforces of the BBC (24,000) and McDonalds (67,000) put together. Volunteering in Scouting can provide opportunities for travel and adventures throughout the UK and internationally – like the World Scout Jamboree in Japan 2015. Adults volunteers must be aged 18 or older. Young people aged 14 to 17 can still help us by volunteering as a Young Leader. A criminal record check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) will be required.

We look forward to welcoming you to the team!
