Adult Volunteers

Volunteering for Scouting is easier than you think and one of the most fun, rewarding and positive things you can ever do.

You can give as much or as little time you like. Whether you can spare an hour a month or a day a year, we will match opportunities that fit your skills and time available. We have opportunities both behind the scenes and working with young people in uniform.

With full support and training, you can experience the fun, friendship and adventure of Scouting for yourself, all on a flexible basis. You do not need any previous Scout experience and we welcome everyone, both male and female and with no upper age limit. You do not even have to camp if you do not want to!

So if you would like to have fun and make friends, earn professional qualifications and make a real difference to the lives of young people please read on.

Join the Scouting Adventure in Portishead

Scouting offers the chance to build on personal skills, such as teamwork, confidence and leadership, as well as gaining externally recognised skills, all whilst having a brilliant time.

The majority of our volunteers believe that the skills and the experiences they have gained through Scouting have been of relevance to their working or personal lives, so come and volunteer with us and make a positive impact on your community!

To get started with your adventure, take a look at our vacancies page and see which areas interest you – feel free to get in touch here if you have any questions, or would like to have an informal chat about where you could fit into the fun and adventure.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
