Suffolk Scouts have joined forces with Community Action Suffolk (CAS) to recruit more volunteers for local Scouting. Despite record numbers of adults volunteering in Suffolk we still have nearly 500 young people on our Waiting Lists across the County

This will be a co-ordinated approach to recruiting volunteers via the website and linked to our own website. It will also include some novel approaches to Employer Supported Volunteering being promoted by CAS.

Headlined “You don’t have to be Bear Grylls to volunteer with Suffolk Scouts” it aims to recruit across all roles in Scouting – Leaders, Supporters and Skills Instructors etc. It will highlight not only the benefits of Scouting to our young people but also what it means for the volunteer.

The joint enterprise will be launched during Suffolk Action Week taking place from Monday 30th September to Sunday 6th October. Suffolk Scouts will be alongside CAS at events throughout the week. Look out for events near you.
