If you are aged 18 years or over and wish to become a volunteer there are many ways you can help us, and enjoy the fun and adventure of Scouting to.
Even if you have a very limited amount of free time you can still volunteer as an Occasional Helper. If you can help just a hour a month assisting the leaders on a Beaver, Cub Scout, or Explorer meeting you can be an Occasional Helper. Some Occasional Helpers assist just once or twice a year on a camp or similar activity. You need no Scouting experience, do not wear a uniform , and you decide how much time you spend as a volunteer.
Scout Active Support Unit
The Scout Active Support Unit of the 1st Bedworth Scout Group is designed for those adults who wish to support the group and the sections within it in a flexible way. It welcomes men and women of all ages, interests and backgrounds and there is no need to have been involved in Scouting or Guiding before.
Scout Active Support is a way for you to volunteer some time to Scouting in a way that suits you. It is open to everyone over the age of 18 years.All you need is willingness and to give up a small amount of your time. You will also need to be vetted by an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau check.
The Scout Active Support Units aim is to provide Active Support to the Group’s activities. Active support means whatever you want it to mean, it includes all of your skills irrespective of your age and ability. It can be anything from physical, mental, technical or simply just general support that you could provide.
Everyone has something to offer Scouting so why not become part of our unit.
The aim of the Unit is “Providing Active Support”, with the emphasis being very much on supporting the youth programme in an active manner.
Whether it be:
* To support us at a social event
* Help us in our fundraising
* Assisting us in maintaining our building and grounds
* Offer your skills and knowledge
* Helping out on a section night or at camp
As well as supporting the sections and the group there is also be a social side to the unit.
Current ideas in mind are:
* Theatre trips
* Skittles evening
The Group Executive Committee meet once a month for around two hours and the assist the Group Leadership Team by controlling the finances of the Group, making sure that we have a suitable place to meet, and making sure that we have the equipment and resources we need to provide an exciting and challenging programme. 1st Bedworth is a Registered Charity and the Group Executive are the Charity Trustees for the Group
We are always looking for people who are prepared to become part of the Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer Leadership Teams. Typically this involves a time commitment of around two hours a week. You will receive full training and require no previous Scouting experience.
