What is Scout Active Support?

Scout Active Support is for anyone over the age of 18 years.
It is a way for adults to volunteer time to Scouting 
in a flexible way that suits them.

There is no requirement to have been involved in Scouting before joining - all that is required is a willingness to volunteer some time to support Scouting.

Scout Active Support is a resource for managers of local Scouting.

Examples of how Active Support members can support Scouting include such as:-

  • Providing an source of extra adult help in Leader absence
  • Teaching skills that existing Leadership team may not have
  • Helping with planning and fundraising for an international trip
  • Helping with recruitment for a Group/District or County by attending local events such as University Open Days
  • Sharing their knowledge of the local area
  • Coordinating a Group/District or County event
