Volunteer Recruitment

The Regional Services Team are hosting an interactive workshop on a number of dates through March and April, that are aimed at helping all Leaders and Section leaders to recruit new adult volunteers. So whether it’s moving the parents that have helped in the background on Zoom, from the virtual world into the room or re-engaging families you have lost contact with this is the workshop for you.

The workshop will cover the following areas, thinking here and now, for socially distanced and digital programme delivery:

  • Socially distanced parent/carer engagement and how to make the most of it
  • Using family rotas online and in bubbles
  • Welcoming new volunteers to the team
  • How to ask for help and promoting vacancies
  • The Four Week Challenge
  • Recruiting to non-uniformed roles

Sign up to the workshops on The Scouts website.

Recruitment Resources

New and improved resources are being prepared to support you to recruit and welcome new volunteers, that will be added to ‘Growing Scouts’ and the brand centre from April. Expect tips about how to approach recruitment, social media advert examples, a recruitment ready checklist, webinar briefings and much more.

Covid-Safe Programmes


Over the next few days, this section will be filled with Socially Distanced programme ideas!

If you previously had an approved Covid-19 Risk Assessment, you do not need to get this re-approved unless significant new risks are identified and added to the Risk Assessment (e.g. Significant change in environment, moving indoors, residential activities…).
