As outlined in our recent member update, The Scouts have shown a great ability to move forward; new uniforms, open to girls, Scouts on Zooms and new sections including squirrels. By developing and moving forwards, we’ll keep having a remarkable impact on the lives of young people and the communities they live in.

Since 2017, volunteers from across the Country created a plan to grow our movement, that plan became our Skills for Life strategy.

The Scouts next step is to make volunteering easier, and more rewarding. 
Over the past 5 years, The Scouts have invited all volunteers to have their say and they’ve spoken members of the public, young people, leavers and other organisations to help develop the next steps.

The Scouts have been inspired by your reflections, and the changes you want to see.
1,500 volunteers are involved in improving volunteer experience in Scouts, by:

  • Creating a warmer welcome for new volunteers, with flexible, personalised ways to get involved
  • Simplifying volunteering, by changing roles and team structures
  • Making learning valuable, focused, and convenient, and considering where the Wood Badge will become optional and open to all
  • Developing a new digital experience to reduce admin for everyday things, like managing member data


Our next step in Greater Manchester West is to build a Transformation Team to help shape our journey to achieve the four aims above. 
We are looking for volunteers from across our County and from a diverse range of roles who are change-leaders and dream-makers to be part of our team!

We are looking to recruit a passionate and diverse team with a range of skills and knowledge. If you have an interest or experience in one or more of the following areas, the transformation team could be the place for you.

  • Project management
  • Delivering change
  • Communications and volunteer engagement
  • Mentoring or coaching
  • Digital transformation
  • Data and membership management


Are you feeling energised, engaged and empowered?
