Become a volunteer

As we are getting back to more normal Scouting we are recruiting for Leaders and ‘Behind the Scenes’ volunteers to enable us to offer Scouting to many of the young people on our waiting lists.

Whatever your skillset, lend a hand for as little or as much time as you can spare, and we promise you’ll get more out than you put in.  Our volunteering opportunities are as varied as you and there is plenty to choose from in Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and the villages of Mid Sussex. Because whether you’re helping a leader to run an activity in the local village hall or Scout HQ, organising a night away, or buttering 120 slices of bread for a group of very hungry eleven year olds – no two meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great

Can you help to bring Scouting to these young people?

Our volunteers are our everyday heroes. Have a look at the volunteer opportunities below and click on any that are of interest to you. We will pass them on to a local volunteer who will be in touch shortly.
