The Scout Association provides adventurous activities and personal development opportunities for 400,000 young people aged 6-25. Internationally, we have over 28 million young people enjoying the benefits of Scouting across 216 countries. Personal development means promoting the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual well-being of the individual, helping them achieve their full potential. In Scouting, we believe that young people develop most when they are ‘learning by doing,’ when they are given responsibility, work in teams, take acceptable risks and think for themselves.
For your child
For the adults
We are always in need of adult volunteers. If you can spare an hour to help us at one of our events or if you have a talent which you could demonstrate and share with our members then please get in touch on the Contact Page. It doesn’t matter what your talent is, if you can bake a cake, play the drums or even shoot a bow and arrow, and you can spare just two hours to share this with the children then please get in touch. All new experiences for the children count towards their badges.
If you don’t want to share your experiences with the children then you could always volunteer to be part of the committee. You will have a say on how the group is run and help us manage our duties as a registered charity. Please visit the meet the committee page for more information.
Remember, the scouts is a registered not-for-profits charity and everyone at Wall Heath Scouts is a non-paid volunteer. All money raised by us is spent on childrens activities, the scout hut and scouting equipment.
