We have so many young people wanting to join our Beaver Scouts, we need additional volunteers to help us meet the demand for places.
Helping with Beavers is really great fun and very rewarding. There are numerous intangible benefits too!
According to new research, the majority of Scouting volunteers reported having improved life satisfaction (70%) and self-esteem (66%) since beginning volunteer work, as well as having reduced feelings of loneliness (42%) and stress (33%).
Nearly two thirds (65%) also said that since beginning volunteer work they have developed useful employability skills; with 59% saying they feel more confident and 54% feeling more motivated in their jobs.
“As a Leader it has given me a lot more confidence than when I started helping”
“As a parent, I couldn’t ask my children to take part in a better activity. I know that whan I am not with them, they are cared for and loved, by a much wider family.”
We currently have three full colonies running on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We have enough Young People on our waiting list to fill a fourth colony!!
