Induction is the first step on a new adult’s journey to getting involved in Scouting. It is essential to make sure they are supported, welcomed and understand how they will be involved.

Across Berkshire we are encouraging the use of  Induction Mentors within Groups and Districts to assist the Group Scout Leader and Managers with inducting new volunteers. Below are a few useful resources which may help Induction Mentors, Group Scout Leaders and others to welcome new adults into their teams.
