You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? Can you boil water? Make sandcastles? Plant daffodils? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways. We have many opportunities for you to help either with the young people’s activities or with our administration and maintenance. Learn more about volunteering and Get Involved!

One of my big missions is to encourage people across the UK who have the time, enthusiasm and ability, whatever it is, to put something back into their communities. It’s about a lot of people doing a little. I don’t want to hear any more about kids who can’t join because of a lack of leaders. We’ve got a brilliant, talented nation and I want some of that talent to be used to support young people.

Bear Grylls, Chief Scout
