What you can get out of volunteering
Volunteering in Scouting is fun and rewarding. You will have the chance to learn new skills, rediscover adventure, make new friends, spend more time with your child if they are a Scout and give something back to your community.
It is not necessarily about being there every week or leading an activity there are lots of roles in the scout group that can help the troop to run smoothly. So you don’t need extensive knowledge of knots and lashings to be able to help out.
Some tasks in the group help the leadership team out so that we can focus on running the group and other people help out. These are little activities like organising hut hire, looking at fundraising avenues or managing equipment at the group.
If you do have a skill this can be a great help in making the Scout associations strategy become true. Scouts are focusing on Skills for Life for the young people that are involved in the movement this sometimes requires specialist equipment or knowledge people that are able to show them vital skills.
Not only this but there are always little jobs that need doing to keep our meeting place running and safe, so if you have a skill that you would like to help out with or just want to help out get in contact with Mark our Group chairperson.
And if you are interested in becoming a uniformed member contact Chris our Assistant Group Scout Leader.
