Could you help out?

‘Scouting is a character factory.’ Not our words, but those of our lead volunteer, chief scout Bear Grylls. Are you ready to inspire a generation of young people to experience fun, friendship and real adventure? The opportunities to volunteer with us are flexible. Think of something you’d like to do and chances are it’s just what we require.

Why Volunteer?

Scouting in the UK is growing, we currently have over 30,000 young people nationally on our waiting lists unable to join simply because we don’t have enough adult volunteers.
Some of the reasons for volunteering:
To give something back to the community.
To develop your own skills.
To support the Leaders.
To enjoy and rediscover the adventure for yourself.

How can I help?

All of our leaders and helpers are volunteers who give up their time to organise and run meetings every week as well as other activities and nights away throughout the year.
You can give as much or as little time as you like, we appreciate that we are all busy people when we’re not volunteering.
If you would like to help out in the Group please email gsl@1stkendal.co.uk or speak to any of our leaders.

If being a leader isn’t for you then there are various other supporting roles you may be interested in.

All of our leaders and helpers are DBS checked and follow a child protection policy, details of which can be found at: scouts.org.uk
