Our adventure is made possible thanks to our amazing team of adult volunteers.  These people give up their time to support our young people in a wide range of roles: from working directly with young people, helping manage the Group’s finances, to being a charity Trustee.  We help our volunteers to get the most out of their Scouting experience by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship!  Check our frequently asked questions below to find a bit more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Skills do I need?

All you need to bring to Scouting is enthusiasm when you Volunteer! No previous experience is required and we will give you as much or as little support and training as you need.  Everyone has skills they can bring to the role often you just don’t realise it!

What if I don’t have that much spare time?

Don’t worry!  Outside of Scouting, some of our volunteers work shifts, some are in full time employment, some are part time.  As a result some volunteer every week, others once a month others more occasionally.  Volunteering with us is easy and flexible, just get in touch with us to find out how!

What will I get out of Volunteering with Dringhouses Scouts?

As much as you want to get out of it! Scouting offers you the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. You get to do all this while having fun, making friends and changing the lives of young people for the better.

My child is in Scouting – is there anything I could do to help?

Absolutely, in fact many of our helpers and leaders are parents of our youth members.

Are there any age or other restrictions on helping out?

As long as you’re over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting. There is no upper age limit for adult volunteers.  Depending on the role we’ll need to get a DBS heck done for you (but we sort that out).  Other than that everyone is welcome in our Group.
