Sd00547360 00001 1The Scout Association is the UK's largest mixed youth movement. We offer activities, adventure and personal development opportunities to more than 400,000 young people and 100,000 adult volunteers.

We believe in helping young people grow in confidence and explore their potential as well as providing a range of adult volunteering opportunities.

There are five age ranges in Scouting:-


Beaver Scouts 6-8
Cub Scouts 8-10.5 
Scouts  10.5-14
Explorer Scouts 14 -18
Scout Network  18-25


If you were to choose to volunteer, you can work directly with young people or in a support role as a team or an individual. Prior experience or a connection with Scouting is not necessary and we welcome people from different backgrounds.



We have vacancies across the Group for you to get involved with supporting the adventure. Why not have a look at some of our featured vacancies?



Please contact us to find your ideal role. If you're the parent/carer of a young person in Scouting, be sure to visit our Parents page as well.



Remember, you can decide how much or little time you give to Scouting

Volunteering for Scouting gives you the chance to try different activities, visit new places and learn and share skills. In doing so you will be making a positive difference to the lives of young people. From archery to canoeing, camping to drama, young people get the opportunity to try new things, explore their talents, develop their values and beliefs and make the most out of life.
