Section Assistants and Leaders

Section Assistants:
If you wish to help then consider becoming a Section Assistant. This would involve helping a Section Leader deliver their Section’s Programme. There is a requirement to undertake a small amount of ‘Essential Information’ training and to complete the necessary CRB Form if you have not already done so. Uniform is optional, and is paid for by the Group.

Within each section there is usually a Leader assisted by a number of Assistant Leaders. All sections must have at least one appointed Leader to be able to operate effectively. They are responsible for the delivery of the programme for their Section as well as the health and well being of the children in their care whilst on Scouting activities.

If you wish to jump straight in then consider joining the leadership team as a Leader. You don’t have to have a Scouting or Guiding background, just the willingness to help young people have fun and fulfil their greatest potential. It is great fun and rewarding for Leaders as well, just have a talk with a Section Leader or the Group Scout Leader.

Full training and uniform is provided by the Group, as well as advice and support from other Leaders in the Group, District and County.
