Coronavirus (Covid-19):- From Thursday 27 January 2022 we move back to the Green Readiness Level!  This change means that all Scouting activities can resume so long as they are safe to do so and following the remaining guidance, please remember that all activities should still be managed in a COVID responsible manner.

Active Support

Who Can Join?

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 allows people to give their time to Scouting on a flexible basis. People can still be involved in Scouting without the full-time commitment of being a leader. Scout Active Support provides a resource for Managers of local Scouting including Group Scout Leaders and Commissioners, who can use it in whichever way is required.
