Volunteering

You don't need to be able to offer a regular weekly commitment; there are lots of ways you can help.

You might be able to run a badge course for us in a particular subject. Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers all like to gain badges, and there are an enormous number to choose from.

You might like to help us run a camp. There are many different camps throughout the year for the various age groups.

Perhaps you could raise funds for us by organising a sponsored event, or selling from a fund-raising catalogue.

Maybe you could help keep the HQ building in good condition, or help with the maintenance of the copse.

You could become a trustee of the Group.

It would be really good for the parents and other adults to have get togethers or outings or parties.

There really isn't a lot of red tape. Depending on the role you volunteer for, you would probably need to have a DBS check, and if working with the youngsters directly,or as a trustee, you would do a small amount of training/induction to support you in your work.
