Volunteering in Ormskirk District


Think you know Scouting? Think Again!

We’re really going places, Scouting in the UK is growing and we’d love you to join our adventure as a volunteer!

But what could I do?


The key word here is flexibility. People are busy, we know that, we’re busy too, so Scouting has roles that will fit around you and the time that you can give. Whether that’s an hour a week or a day a year, we’d love to have you along.

One thing you can think about is whether you want to work with young people, either as a leader or occasional helper, or whether you’d prefer a support role such as a treasurer or member of an executive committee. There are volunteer roles for everybody.

Perhaps you have specialist skills you think you could share with us? This could be anything from helping with the Mechanic Badge to repairing the roof of your local leaky scout hut!

How much time will it take?

That’s up to you, did we mention we’re flexible?!

If you can make a regular weekly commitment then great, we have thousands of people waiting to join our youth sections, but not enough leaders! But if you can only help once a month or can give us a weekend a year, that’s fine, we’ll talk to you about how you can still get something from volunteering with us.

One thing we can guarantee is a great time, our volunteers make lots of friends, gain skills through the support we can offer, and take as much from Scouting as they put in.

Where can I volunteer?

You could volunteer in Ormskirkvolunteer in Burscoughvolunteer in Skelmersdale or Aughton or Upholland, in fact you can volunteer all over West Lancashire Borough with the Scouts. If you get in touch then we can help you find a role and a location that suits you.

I’m interested, get in touch!
