Adult Support

Adult volunteers are at the heart of Scouting, and we hope that you will get every bit as much out of it as you put in. Scouting is not only about young people, but also about the development of adults within the movement.

To support adults in Scouting, The Scout Association provides a comprehensive programme of training to build on existing skills and knowledge and develop new competencies.

These pages provide links to information on how Scout adult training is delivered locally in Berkshire.
