Volunteering at Scouts is changing to help us reach more young people - Discover what this means

Can you help us out?

As a parent or carer, you may be willing to help us out, but not sure how. There are so many ways you can join in the fun, some taking very little time only now and again, some with more commitment.

Have a look at the options below and let us know if you can help at all, then we’ll contact you to explain more.

Don’t worry, if you pick something and change your mind after we won’t mind! Just give it a go!

Please still fill in the form even if you can’t help – there’s a box down the bottom for that. It’ll let us know where we stand rather than not knowing.
