About Scouting in Norfolk
Scouting offers fun and friendship, challenge and everyday adventure to 400,000 girls and boys across the UK. We have a positive impact on young people, our 100,000 adult volunteers and the communities in which we live.
Offering over 200 different activities from abseiling and archery to drama, street sports and water zorbing, Scouting helps 6-25 year olds grow in confidence, achieve their full potential and become active members of their communities.
This is only possible through the efforts of 100,000 volunteers who also enjoy the fun and friendship of Scouting. Trusted by nearly a million parents each week, the Movement welcomes members from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures. Special emphasis is placed on bringing the Scouting programme to young people who currently do not benefit, particularly those in inner cities, those in rural areas and other disadvantaged groups. The Scout Association is a registered charity in the UK and part of a worldwide movement of 31 million Scouts working for peace and global friendship.
There are over 7000 people involved in Scouting in Norfolk across 9 districts who between them support over 100 groups.
Volunteering for Norfolk Scouts
You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways.
All the adults involved in scouting are all volunteers and we value them greatly for what they do. Some choose to become a Leader supporting the delivery of weekly meetings for the young people and helping at camps and other Scouting events.
Other people prefer to be members an Executive Committee ensuring that a Scout Group or District has enough money and lets the frontline leaders concentrate on delivering great scouting to our members. Whatever skills you have or how ever much of your time you can spare, there is a way for you to get involved in Scouting.
