#GoodForYou – A message from Bear Grylls
Volunteering. It’s #GoodForYou.
Volunteering’s not just about giving back – it goes both ways. It improves your wellbeing, gives you skills for the future, and helps you make new friends (and memories).
All our activities are run by volunteers, who might join us because they want to:
Try something new
Spend time with their children – or gain experience with young people
Do something good for their community and themselves
Keep their bodies and brains active and happy – whether that’s by scaling mountains, sharing skills or serving tea
All end up making a huge difference to young people’s lives – gifting them with skills for life, and learning a whole lot about themselves along the way.
But don’t just take our word for it. Take theirs.
If it wasn’t for Scouts, I think I’d have been spiralling down throughout this pandemic – I’ve made so many friends it’s unbelievable

I’m teaching my child things I value and that other children and other parents value as well – it’s brought out something I never knew I had
