Opportunities for Adults


The everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers. They support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group or being a charity Trustee.

Scout Active Support

Scout Active Support allows people to give their time to Scouting on a flexible basis. People can still be involved in Scouting without the full-time commitment of being a leader.

Network_RGB_black_linear-small18 – 25 years

Scout Network is for 18 to 25 year olds looking for adventure. As a Scout Network Member you get to take part in all the usual great Scouting activities such as kayaking, climbing, camping as well as work on projects helping to support your local community.
