Volunteering at Chorlton Scouts

Scouting is made up of many different types of volunteers

From the Duchess of Cambridge or Chief Scout Bear Grylls, to teachers, postal workers, shop assistants, business people – there is no such thing as a typical volunteer. Some are members, some are supporters and others are parents or young people wanting to do something to help achieve the aims of the Movement.

Adults in Scouting support the Movement in the following ways:

  • Working directly with young people as Leaders, Assistant Leaders, Section Assistants and parent helpers
  • Supporting other adults as a volunteer manager (i.e. Group Scout Leaders, and Commissioners)
  • Looking after the administrative side of Scouting as Chairs, Secretaries, Administrators and Treasurers

Volunteering opportunities are flexible

When someone talks to us about volunteering, we find a role that fits with their time and skills. If that means an hour a month, then we’ll work out how we can make the most of that – designed to fit around the time you have available to volunteer.

Ready to get involved? Email chorlton@mansouthscouts.org.uk.

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.
