Are you bursting with energy and ideas?

Help shape young people’s live for the better and give them the skills they need to succeed in life. Discover how being part of Scouting can be as rewarding and amazing for you as it is for them. It is easier than you think. Whatever your skillset, you can volunteer in a way that suits you.

Please get in touch (at joinus@9threigate.org.uk) if you are interested in any way, shape or form.


You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to join us. You don’t need to have been a Scout when you were young. You don’t even need to know how to put up a tent. No experience is necessary!

Our volunteering is designed to be flexible. You can give as much or as little time you like and we will match opportunities that fit your skills and time available. Just a few hours of your time can make years of difference. We’re only able to change lives because people like you lend a hand, whatever your age, gender, race, background or skillset.
