 Please Help Support Scouting in Penarth District

Scouting in 2014, both locally and nationally, is clearly still very popular, so we always require additional adult help and support to allow us to provide better programmes and activities for our youngsters!

In Penarth, we currently have waiting lists for youngsters wishing to become Beavers and Cubs in our Scout Groups. We therefore invite all active adults who are willing and able to help us provide an exciting, productive and enjoyable Scouting experience for our youngsters to come along and join in all the fun!

Our many adult volunteers help provide needed back-up to our dedicated leader teams in many different ways, as part of a parent rota, with fundraising, or helping to manage Scouting by working on Group and District Executive committees. Those wishing to work actively with our youngsters may do so, either as non-uniformed Sectional Assistants, or as full leaders in the Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer Scout Sections.

We need enthusiastic adult volunteers for the following roles:

Uniformed Leaders to work with Beaver Scouts (6-8 years), Cub Scouts (8-10 years), Scouts (10-14 years), or Explorer Scouts (14 to 18 years). Sectional Assistants, (non-uniformed helpers) are also required in all sections. People willing to help manage Scouting, as Group Officers, committee members or fundraisers, are also always required.

 We invite applications for any of these voluntary positions, all of which are, of course, fully unpaid! Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. A full programme of training and support is provided for all adult volunteers.


A full DBS (Disclosure and Barring Servicee ) Disclosure clearance, together with references, will be required for all posts.


For more information regarding any of these adult roles, please contact:
