Working behind the scenes

Not everything we do involves working with young people 


We have to manage our premises, manage the business of the Group (as a charity) and raise funds.


Here you can see more about these important roles - supporting the Scout Group and allowing Leaders to get on with the business of providing the best possible Scouting for our young people.


We always need people to help with these tasks and we have a current vacancy for a Group Chair. If you'd like to get involved in any way, please Click Here.

Current Vacancy:

Group Chair


We prepare young people with skills for life. But who supports the volunteers who make this happen? People like you.


You can inspire, motivate and plan ahead. Leading our team of trustees (below), you’ll enjoy working with other adults and seeing the impact of your efforts. You’ll be organised, diplomatic and know how to get the best out of people.


We’re not going to pretend this is easy. This is a big role. With big rewards.


And because you believe in the power of Scouting to help more young people you’ll know it’s all worthwhile.


Sound like you? Great. Let's talk!



The Scout Group is an independent Scottish Charity (SC032681) and must comply with appropriate legislation and guidelines. Our volunteer trustees give their time to ensure that the Scout Group continues to operate safely and legally.


They make sure there’s enough money for our volunteer Leaders to deliver the programme and that the Scout Centre and equipment such as tents and activity materials are available and safe to use.


The trustees form the Executive Committee. This meets 6-9 times a year and trustees are elected annually at the AGM. Our trustees have different skills to offer, come from different backgrounds and have varying experience.


There are some skills and experiences that would really help, such as:

  • Recruitment of adults and young people
  • Fundraising
  • Organising events
  • Publicity
  • Premises management
  • Financial knowledge and experience
  • IT and administration
  • Governance

Looking after our Scout Centre


We own our Scout Centre and we're responsible for all repairs and maintenance.


We have a team who carry out the practical work required - painting, joinery, electrical, gardening, etc - to keep our Scout Centre working and in good condition. There's always plenty to be done!


We now have an amazing building. Find out more on our Scout Centre page.

Helping to raise funds


We have an active fundraising programme to provide additional funds to invest in our premises, equipment and activities.


There are many ways to help with this. Much of it can be done from home and fit around other commitments, such as:


  • Help run hot food stalls at community events
  • Make applications for grants and donations
  • Organise our annual Group sponsor event
  • Run our annual prize draw
  • Organise events such as quiz nights
