Volunteering with a Scout District

Want to make a big impact behind the scenes? Your time and skills can make a difference in so many ways. Scout Groups are support by their District team through advice, funds and resources, events, recruitment and training.

Not all volunteers work directly with young people. Locally, regionally and nationally, many help out in other ways.

Working at District level within a team, you might:

  • Get the best out of volunteers, using their people and leadership skills
  • Help with admin, fundraising, finances, operations or governance
  • Providing support with training

Not sure how you’d like to help yet, or how much time you have to give? No worries. Your local team can chat you through a whole host of options – including flexible and occasional volunteering.
