Meet our volunteers
Scouts is full of ordinary people making an extraordinary difference to young people's lives and learning a whole lot along the way – meet some of them below.
Saroj – Birmingham
When Saroj started helping out at Scouts, she expected to spend more quality time with her daughter, but she could never have predicted it'd be the start of a whole new chapterVolunteer today
Jonny and Chris – Manchester
Jonny and Chris’ adoption journey started at Scouts. Now parents to Max, 4, it’s since become the highlight of their week as a family – and the one thing everyone can agree on.Volunteer today
Carina – London
Carina joined as a young person and continues to volunteer. Since then, she’s gained skills in everything from canoeing to media production and credits Scouts with strengthening her (successful) application to Oxford UniversityVolunteer today
If it wasn’t for Scouts, I think I'd have been spiralling down throughout this pandemic – I’ve made so many friends it’s unbelievable
Saroj, Section Leader, Birmingham
Being a volunteer has changed me quite drastically. I never thought I'd be able to lead children in activities. I didn't have the capability or confidence. Now I do.
