New to Scouting?


Support to Guide You in your First Months

If you are new to Scouting, you may have a lot of questions around the appointment process, about your training, where to find help and a mentor.

Based on content from our friends on Greater London South County, South Tyneside District have produced a handy website which covers:

  • What is Scouting?
  • Volunteering with Scouting
  • The Appointments Process
  • Keeping you in the Loop
  • Your Induction
  • On-going Support

You can access these resources at South Tyneside Adult Support

Note that the detail of these processes can vary between Districts, so if you have specific questions on your induction, appointment, training or support, please speak to your Training Adviser or your Group Scout Leader. Failing that, please contact your District Commissioner.
