Activity Centres – Volunteering

Help our members Get Outdoors More

Getting young people outdoors is a big part of what we do and our centres are here to help you make it happen!

Key to delivering these outdoor experiences are the amazing volunteers that work alongside our centres staff so that our members can enjoy the safe, supportive and positive environment we want to create.

Each centre has volunteers, operating within the Scout Active Support Unit (ASU) structure. We already have nearly 200 volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds, performing the broadest range of roles imaginable.

To support those volunteers, and ensure that they have a clear voice in how we manage our centres going forwards, we are putting in place clear ASU service agreements at each centre and creating a structure that gives them representation on our Activity Centres Management Committee (ACMC).

We are always looking for new volunteers, if you would like to join a service team or maybe visit a centre and understand a bit more about what they do, please contact the centre you are interested in volunteering at.
