District Lead Volunteer Search

District Lead Volunteers are key to Scouts working well locally. Before nominating someone, or nominating yourself, please do take a moment to find out more about the role. 

Some of the key tasks:

  • Work well on their own (and together).
  • Support young people and volunteers to feel welcome and included, and make changes (when necessary) so the environment and activities are accessible for everyone.
  • Are inclusive and reflect the demographics of their local area.
  • Have the resources, skills, and enthusiasm to deliver the Scouts strategy.


Make sure:

  • Volunteers in the District’s teams fulfil their safety and safeguarding responsibilities, including keeping up to date with changes and learning.
  • Any helpers are briefed on the practical aspects of safety and safeguarding. This includes giving them a copy of the Yellow Card, confirming they’ve read and understood it. Check they know who to speak to if they have any concerns.
  • Volunteers are aware of Our Volunteering Culture, reflect on it, commit to it, and apply it in their teams.

But don't worry, you're not alone and the role comes with induction and on-going support from the County team!
