As you will have heard from your County/District Teams and via the Membership Communications, there are some changes ahead as to how we volunteer within The Scouts. These changes will enable even more people to gain Skills for Life with a focus on improving our Volunteer Experience, with changes aiming to make our roles and responsibilities more flexible with less time spent on admin as well as improving how we recruit and retain adult volunteers.
Understanding the Change
It’s important to understand what’s changing, why it’s needed and how attractive the change is to those who’ll receive it. We also need to understand the barriers people will face so we know where support is required.
To allow us to support you with these changes, we will be running some events throughout 2023 to fully involve you in the decisions being made. Please take a look at these events and sign up to those that apply to your roles.
If you’d like to get involved with supporting the delivery of these changes, check out our team roles and sign up using the button below.
Check out an overview of each change area using the links below. These pages will give you a top-level understanding of each area of change, which will help you move towards being ready to transition across to our new ways of working.
This timeline highlights some of our key milestones on our journey of transformation. More detailed steps will be added over time where required, with these general markers showing the key steps we are taking towards improving our volunteer experience.
You can scroll along the timeline using the arrows to the left and right of the top line with the years on.
