Across the country there are far more children who would like to join Scouting than there are places available – and Samford Valley is no different.  If we had more leaders, then more children could take advantage of all scouting has to offer.

There are many different ways you could volunteer with Samford Valley.

If you are interested in becoming a leader, there is a comprehensive training scheme to help you learn the ropes and you will be fully supported in your role by the Group Scout Leader and other leaders in the group.  Leaders don’t have to be able to commit to turning up every week; the more leaders we have, the more flexible we can be.  We’re a friendly lot and make sure we enjoy ourselves – we can’t have the children having all the fun!

Is there a particular sport or activity that you’d like to teach scouts?  You could join our group as an instructor of climbing, kayaking, air rifle shooting etc.  As long as you can satisfy the permit requirements of the Scout Association, you’d be able to pass on your skills to young people, while only  making a fairly limited time commitment yourself.

Or maybe fundraising or admin are more your thing?  Then we’d definitely like to hear from you.  The more money we can raise, the more exciting the activities we can put on for our young people.

However you’d like to help us, please get in touch via the form on the Find & Contact Us page.
