Leaders & Trustee Board

Put your skills to use, learn new ones and play an active role in your local community. Volunteering is easier than you think. With full support and training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis. Give young people the skills they need to succeed in life and discover how being part of the Scouting family can be as rewarding for you as it is for them.

All our sections are always looking for enthusiastic adults to join our leadership team.

Behind the scenes; Charity Trustees are volunteers who make some of the most important decisions in Scouting.

They are members of a group known as the Trustee Board. The Trustee Board in Scouting is like a board of governors in a school; essentially it makes sure that the best quality Scouting is delivered to young people in the local area.

The volunteers that make up the Board give their time to ensure that Scouting continues to meet its charitable purpose: safely and legally.

Charity Trustees can put their existing skills and experience to good use, helping to support and develop local Scouting and allowing young people in the area to experience fun, friendship, and everyday adventure.

Becoming a Trustee is also a great way to meet new people, learn new skills that can help build a CV, or just to add to experience and confidence in certain areas.
