Oatlands Scout Group is always looking for volunteers to join our team providing scouting for local boys and girls from the age of six upwards. While we welcome volunteers from among the parents of our current young members, there is no expectation that you will volunteer with the section your child attends.

If you are interested in volunteering with the group, please contact the Group Scout Leader, Andrew Fisher (email gsl@oatlandsscouts.org.uk)

At present, we are looking for help in the following roles:

Cub Scout Assistant

You will attend our weekly Cub Scout meetings (for boys and girls aged 8 to 10½) on Monday or Tuesday evenings during school term time. This might be every week, every other week or on a different schedule by arrangement with the Cub Scout leader. You will help organise and run games and activities to develop the skills, self-reliance and character of the cubs, all while making things fun. A model role description is available on the UK Scouts website here

Assistant Cub Scout Leader

You will help at weekly meetings in the same way as the Cub Scout Assistant, but also assist the Cub Scout Leader in planning the programme, budgetting activities and other preparation required to help the section run. A model role description is available on the UK Scouts website here.

Scout Assistant

You will work with the current Chair with the intention of stepping into that role at our next AGM in the spring of 2020. The role of Chair is to lead the Executive Committee and Trustees of the group to ensure good governance and work closely with the Group Scout Leader to support the Leaders and their Assistants in providing scouting to the young members of the group.

This role does not require you to wear a uniform and involves minimal contact with the Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Scouts in the group. A model role description is available on the UK Scouts website here
