Scout Active Support allows people over the age of 18 years old to give their time to Scouting on a flexible basis. People can still be involved in Scouting without the full-time commitment of being a leader.
There is no requirement to have been involved in Scouting before joining. All that is required is a willingness to volunteer some time to support Scouting. Scout Active Support also provides a resource for Managers of the District including Group Scout Leaders, Assistant District Commissioners and the District Commissioner, who can use it in whichever way is required.
