Volunteering with Waltham Forest Scouts

Our activities are all provided by an awesome team of volunteers who give up their time regularly to volunteer with us. In return they have fun, learn new skills and gain qualifications that carry through to everyday home and work life.

You can become part of that team. If you think you don't have the skills, we can fix that with our award winning training recognised by the ILM. With more leaders and helpers we can provide the Scout experience to lot's more young people.

Most of our Scout Groups need additional help and many have enough children on their waiting lists to open extra sections if enough people volunteered. To join one of our Groups please contact the Group direct using the contact details on our home page.

We also have some vacancies at District level. If you are interested in any of these please email the District Commisioner at dc@wf-scouts.org.uk.
