    About 1st Bernwood Forest Scout Group:

    Hello, we are 1st Bernwood Forest Scout Group. We are based at Long Crendon and Dinton in the county of Buckinghamshire. We have a Beaver Colony (for ages 5 1/2 to 7 1/2), three Cub Packs (for ages 7 1/2 to 10 1/2) and two Scout Troops (for ages 10 1/2 to 14).

    We are a very active and fully inclusive group and have a fun-packed and exciting programme of activities for the young people that support them developing skills for life.

    As a result of our popularity, we have a large waiting list of young people waiting to join in the fun. That’s where you come in.

    You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to join us. You don’t need to have been a Scout when you were younger. You don’t even need to know how to put up a tent. Our door is open to people of all ages, genders, races and backgrounds, and we’re only able to change lives because people like you lend a hand. We’re talking about tea makers, tidy-uppers and skill sharers. We’re talking about mini bus drivers and first aiders. We’re talking about students who want to boost their CV, and parents who volunteer so they can spend more time together as a family.

    Whatever your skillset, lend a hand for as little or as much time as you can spare, and we promise you’ll get more out than you put in. Because whether you’re helping a leader to run an activity, organising a night away, or buttering 120 slices of bread a group of very hungry eleven year olds - no two Scout meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.

    We provide the training. You show up, get stuck in, and make memories for life.

    Sounds fun? Worthwhile? It is. Contact us today to find out how you can help young people develop...

    Skills for Life

    What are we looking for?
    We are looking for adults that want to support young people and their development, but can not commit to being uniformed leaders. Whatever your background, it's your support of the young people that is important.

    Our volunteers all have different skills, experience and backgrounds and many have never been involved in scouting before. What they bring to the role includes:-

    > Teamwork
    > Social skills
    > Decision making
    > A focus on inclusion

    So please contact us today to get involved and help young people develop Skills for Life.

    This is an exciting opportunity to help your local Scout Group. You can decide how much or little time you wish to give. There are four age ranges (sections) where you can volunteer: Beaver Scouts 6 - 8 years/ Cub Scouts 8 - 10.5 years/ Scouts 10.5 - 14 years As part of a leadership team you will help plan, organise and deliver a balanced programme of activities, events and experiences, based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, skills and world. In each section a range of badges and awards support all aspects of Scouting, including: leadership, teamwork and personal development. Why volunteer? - you'll have fun and feel rewarded - you'll learn new skills - you'll make new friends - you'll add to your CV and have the opportunity to gain qualifications - you'll make a difference and give something back to your community. Love camping, walking, being outdoors and inspiring young people? If you enjoy being part of a team then this is the perfect match for you. Prior experience or a connection with Scouting is not necessary and we welcome people from all backgrounds. Out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed. Different sections meet on different days of the week (evenings) during school term time and occasionally at weekends for other events and activities. You can choose which day you help on and how often (once a term, month, or weekly if you wish).

    Normally, our main offices are in Abingdon, Didcot, Henley and Thame. Ninety volunteers and staff are now advising the public from home on our AdviceLine service.

    Additional Information:

    We can all face problems that are too stressful or complicated to sort out alone.

    Last year, our 150 volunteers advised over 11,000 people. We helped three quarters resolve their debt, benefits, employment and housing problems.

    We now need more advisers to help us during and after the Covid-19 crisis.

    What will you get out of it? You will join a friendly team, meet new people, develop your skills and make a real difference to people’s lives.

    You’ll need to have good listening and interpersonal skills, a willingness to learn and be confident with computers. Full training will be provided.

    Additional Information:

    Plenty of roles in Girlguiding.
    Here in Thame we are heavily involved in the community, and we would love to have all types of people to help out with us fundraising and being involved in the Carnival, Music In the Park, and with our trips out.

    A few of our popular options are listed here.

    Help out on a parent rota - by offering a helping hand at a few meetings per year, you can support your daughter's leaders and experience the fun of guiding.

    Help with administration - you could get involved with anything from planning events and camps to managing finances and helping with fundraising.

    Share a specific skill - whatever you're great at - from football coaching to yoga teaching, graphic design to engineering - you could help inspire girls to try something new.

    Become an occasional helper - you'll assist in running groups on an ad-hoc basis. You will be supported by other volunteers to assist in delivering activities, trips and adventures for girls.

    Become a leader - if you'd like to support a group more regularly there are lots of opportunities to get involved.

    Working alongside other volunteers, you'll be supported with learning and development opportunities and will make a huge difference in your local community.

    There is more information on www.girlguiding.org.uk about volunteering with us as a whole organisation

    Venue Address:

    Thame Scout Hut Southern Road Thame OX9 2DZ

    Additional Information:

    Scouting relies on strong leadership. So if you can motivate others, keep a cool head and balance a variety of views then you would be an ideal chairperson for Thame Scout Group . With experience of steering meetings to produce excellent decisions, you’ll be equally willing to speak your mind as encouraging others to express their views. You will use your strong communication skills to help a team of committed adult volunteers who make up a Executive Committee arrive at good decision that will benefit young people. Able to work as part of a team, you will also contribute the direction and development of the Group. No previous experience of Scouting is necessary. What’s more important is your own skills and experience as well as empathy with our mission and values. We will provide all appropriate training and ongoing support.
