Join the Adventure

Share your skills, gain new ones

There are many ways you can kick-start your adventure, as a young person, parent or adult volunteer. Our volunteers get involved on their terms and not all roles involve working with young people. If you can give a little time (or a lot) to help improve young lives in your community, we’d love to hear from you.

Young people ages 4-13½ will join a Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs or Scouts section in a Scout group. Explorer Scouts aged young people (13½-18) can join one of our district Explorer units and/or volunteer at a group as a Young Leader. Those between 18-25 can join the District Scout network, or take on an adult volunteer role, with a group, the district or one of our active support units.

There are 15 Groups in Warrington East, located at: Culcheth (Jackson Ave), Culcheth (Methodist Church), Oughtrington, Thelwall, Croft, Gorse Covert, Locking Stumps/Birchwood, St Elphin’s, Pepper Street Lymm, Eagle Brow Lymm, Glazebury, Hollins Green, Grappenhall, Padgate, and Woolston.

All of our Groups host Beavers (6-8 years old), Cubs (8-10½ years old) and Scouts (10½-14 years old). Our newest section, Squirrels (for 4-6 year olds) is still launching and can be found at the 9th Warrigton East (Gorse Covert), 12th Warrington East (1st Birchwood) and 27th Warrington East (Woolston).

There are also four Explorer Units 14-18 in the District, hosted at Birchwood, Woolston, Grappenhall and Oughtrington and we have an active District Network which meets at different locations throughout the distrist based on their programme.
