What is a Scout Active Support Unit?

Scout Active Support allows people 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. Find out more on the Scout Active Support website.

How does the team work?

mountain-bikingThe team is made up of like minded people who want to help Moor House. Here is how it works:

  • We'll sort out all your paperwork (including a DBS check if necessary), so you're ready to roll.
  • You'll be kept up to date with all the latest news about Moor House.
  • When we're in the process of organising a working party or we're looking for assistance with a project, we'll ask you if you want to volunteer to help and send you information on how to register.
  • You may decide to take on a specific role - such as taking overall responsibility for running the team or a project.
