This could be your best decision yet.
A really important role. Someone to lead our trustees and supporters and help to keep the business side of the Scout Group functioning. Support and training provided.
This could be a job-share. Split the tasks with another trustee - focus on your strengths.
Be a Trustee
Making a difference behind the scenes
Join our Trustee Board (yes, we’re a registered charity). Bring with you a desire to see the Scout Group flourish and be well-managed.
Perhaps also a particular skill or interest that may help us. We have a need for people who can contribute to our IT, Health & Safety, Public Relations or HR matters.
We need to keep our books balanced
In a busy Scout Group, money matters and we’re looking for people to be part of our Finance Team.
This would suit a small group of people with some finance background or experience who can work together to deliver the various elements, with the Group Treasurer as the trustee and lead finance volunteer.
Family Help Rota
Be there and make a real
Got a little time to spare? Then this is the easiest way to help us make a real difference for your youngsters. Just sign up to help out at an occasional meeting night or activity.
With a couple of Family Rota helpers each week, we can really transform what we’re able to do at section meetings.
Help to make our weekly meetings amazing!
This is great for coming along to help out regularly at any Section meeting - being part of the team and even share the adventure with your youngster.
You’d need to complete some basic training modules (online) and have a Scout PVG check made. It's not a full Leadership role - but you can progress if you enjoy it!
Active Support Unit
Helping out and joining the adventure.
Keen to be regularly involved in supporting Scouts but limited for time?
Active Support allows you to help out and take part in some activities yourself. You can help with weekly meetings, activities and camps - but also behind the scenes and even those DIY tasks. Your time - your choice!
Make our Scout Hall sparkle!
Be part of a rota with other adults to keep our Scout Hall clean and tidy.
We're looking for people to provide occasional help at planned Sunday morning sessions
Calling all DIYers
Can you fix it?
A really important team needed to keep our Scout Hall in great shape. We’re always on a lookout for people to help us - a group of people who would be happy to take on specific “trade” tasks such as:
Electrical work | Alarms
Painting | Decorating
All done at times that suit you.
Keeping us moving
Looking after a van and trailer
We’re hoping to acquire a crew van and trailer to provide us with the ability to move equipment and people. Regular camps, activities, weekly meetings, fundraisers, tent and equipment hires will only be possible with our own transport. But we’ll need a practical and admin team to deliver this.
Before we can move ahead, we'd like to hear from anyone who might like to be part of this venture
