Scout Active Support (SAS)

Adults in scouting have many supporting roles, some roles are from 1 to 2 hours every 2 months and other roles can be many more depending on how much time you wish to give. There is a huge variety of roles to help run the Scout group, as a trustee on the management team or a chairperson, treasurer, secretary, helping out fund raising, or maintenance of the Scout HQ or equipment. SAS Scout Active Support is a group of Adults or Leaders who cannot commit to a regular commitment to Scouts so help out now and again at Scout Groups, competitions and the recruitment events with the Public Relations and Trailer Team Service. You would make new friends, interact with others, gain confidence, have fun and there is some training involved and Scouts will have to get you a DBS. Leaders in Scouting have many age ranges of boys and girls to work with, Beavers 6 to 8, Cubs 8 to 10.5, Scouts 10.5 to 14, Explorers 14 to 18, Networks 18 to 25. Role times vary but it could be as low as 2 hours a week, but you can, if you wish or you have the spare time, you can do a lot more. You will gain new Scouting friends in your team working with young people from all our differing communities, get to learn new skills, there is lots of training and you don't have to go camping.
