Adult Volunteers

The Group can only exist with the volunteers who give up their time to help, and we always welcome any new helpers.

Whatever your skills, whatever time you can commit, there will be a role where you can help our Group provide Scouting in Bramhall, some of these are briefly described below. To volunteer to help, or for any queries about how you may be able to help, then please email gsl@1stbramhallscouts.org.uk or agsl@1stbramhallscouts.org.uk

Section Assistant – Admin

Assist the Section Leader by managing emails, attendance, programme and general paperwork. Stay for the first 5 minutes to take the register, collect monies, and deal with the “desk duties” at the beginning of each meeting, allowing the leaders to dive straight into the activities planned for the session.

Executive Committee Member

The Executive committee are there to help run the Group. They meet once a term, and their role is to contribute to the running of the Group, by providing administrative support and strategic direction, ensuring the Group meets its obligations.

Section Assistant

Assist the Section Leaders and Assistant Section Leaders in delivering the programme to young people in Scouting

My child is in Scouting – is there anything I could do to help?

The short answer is yes. Many of our helpers and leaders are parents of our youth members because they’ve seen first hand how Scouting benefits young people and want to give something back. It’s also a chance to spend more time with your children and learn new skills. Speak to your child’s leader to discuss how you might become involved.

What if I don’t have that much spare time?

Volunteering with us is easy, fun and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you. Whether you help out once a fortnight, month or term or just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play, and no matter how you get involved, we’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported.

What will I get out of volunteering?

As well as gaining externally recognised skills and having a brilliant time, Scouting also offers the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. A study found that over 90% of our volunteers believe that the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting have been of relevance to their working or personal lives.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
