Scout Active Support comprises adults who, in most cases, would like to be involved with Scouting but cannot make the full time commitment of being a leader. We support the District Commissioner and her team, the District Executive, and Scout Groups.

Who can join?

Parents, helpers, supporters, network members, existing and former leaders can join Active Support - all that you need is a willingness to volunteer some of your time.

What do we do?

Some of the activities in which we get involved are:

  •  Support at large events (e.g. stewarding, car parking, BBQs, etc.) 
  •  Providing occasional temporary cover at group sectional meetings
  •  Assisting with the Gang Show
  •  Helping with the maintenance of the campsite at Invertrossachs.
  •  Skills training and badge work
  •  Fund Raising

In addition to supporting scouting, we run some social activities to encompass the very important “fellowship” element of Scouting.

SAS in Stirling & Trossachs District would be delighted to hear from any potential volunteers - you can contact our District Commissioner, Colin Robertson by completing this form!
