All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe and open to all. Some lead the Colony week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.

HRH The Duchess of Cambridge marks start of Joint Presidency by thanking Scouts volunteers.
We're so pleased to announce that HRH The Duchess of Cambridge today becomes Joint President of the Scouts, working alongside HRH The Duke of Kent to champion the power of Scouting and oversee the council - our governing body.
The Duchess' first engagement as Joint President was a visit to 12th Northolt Scouts to thank them and all Scouts volunteers for supporting young people during lockdown. Making whirly bird helicopters with Cubs, she also encouraged Beaver Scouts as they made cards to send to a local care home.
