Join our national volunteer team

We're the UK's largest mixed youth movement, proudly led by volunteers. Volunteer today.

Volunteers make Scouts happen at a national level as well as a local one. From our Chief Scout and Chair of our Board to the incredible volunteers who support young people at our adventure centres, these are just some of the superstars who've stepped up to inspire a generation.  

We're proud that Scouts is a volunteer led movement. Working in partnership with our staff team and local volunteers, our national team serves the whole movement. That's where you come in.

'We're so proud to be a volunteer led movement, working in close partnership with our staff team. It's through the kindness and commitment of our volunteers, at every level, that we're able to make a difference to so many young lives. Being part of the national team, and supporting the movement comes with both responsibility and reward - in particular, the satisfaction of knowing we are helping a generation gain skills for life. If you are able, please do consider taking on one of these vital roles.'
