Find your nearest Scout Group


The Scouts is the UK’s largest mixed youth organisation with more than 450,000 members in the UK and more across the world.

Volunteering for a local scout group or district is easy, fun, offers opportunities to get externally-recognised qualifications, and gives you the chance to have a real impact on the development of young people.
How much time you give is up to you, and you don’t need any previous experience.
