VolSuffolkWe have linked with Volunteer Suffolk which may have further specific volunteer positions advertised for local scout groups - please go to the Volunteer Suffolk website for more information and where you can see an outline of all the roles advertised

Whether you want to work with young people directly or help behind the scenes, there's something for everyone at Scouts. 

All our activities are run by volunteers, who might join us because they want to: 

  • Try something new
  • Make friends 
  • Spend time with their children – or gain experience with young people
  • Do something good for their community and themselves
  • Keep their bodies and brains active and happy – whether that's by scaling mountains, sharing skills or serving tea 

All end up making a huge difference to young people's lives – gifting them with skills for life, and learning a whole lot about themselves along the way - see Nat's Story below..
