They won’t remember you unlocked the community centre every Thursday.
They will remember this:
Whether you are a Network Member, parent of a child in Scouting, or someone who is totally new to Scouting you’ve come to the right place!
Chief Scout Bear Grylls says
‘I wasn’t involved in Scouting until someone asked me and I jumped at the chance. Adventure isn’t just for young people or those of us already wearing neckerchiefs; it’s for everyone. There’s lots of talent among our 800,000 parents. Let’s bring some of that into Scouting. Just ask – that’s all it takes.’
There are many reasons why adults choose to volunteer for Scouting. Here are some that existing volunteers have given:
- To give something back to the community
- To support the Leaders
- Because volunteering is a ‘good thing
- As an enabler, so the Leader can do more
- To spend more quality time with your child
- To develop your own skills and do something practical
- To enjoy and rediscover adventure for yourself
- To live a healthier more active lifestyle
Scouting is open to all young people aged 6 to 25 of every faith and background.

What do Scouts do?
Sections usually meet on one evening during the week, although they may also go to camps and other days out throughout the year.
Whilst the activities they take part in will depend on their age, each Section gives young people the opportunity to learn by doing.
Leaders in The Scout Association are trained to deliver this programme, ensuring our young people stay safe while they enjoy themselves and learn.
