Bromley Scout District, is a growing district, focused on providing quality, fun and adventurous activities for young people, boys and girls, ages 6 upwards, across the London Borough of Bromley.

Across the borough we currently have 45 Beaver Colonies (ages 6 – 8), 53 Cub Packs (ages 8 – 10 1/2), 48 Scout Troops (ages 10 1/2 – 14) and 27 Explorer Units (ages 14 – 18) providing activities to nearly 3200 young people each week. Our membership has grown consistently over the last five years and demand continues to grow.

We have ambitious plans to support the opening of new groups and sections and would like to offer you the opportunity to be part of our success.

Can you be part of our success?

Whether its one night a week, one hour a week or a couple of hours per month, be it in a uniformed leaders role, or a more back of house support function, you can play a key role in helping us – and have a great time along the way.
We promise that you will receive full training and support to help you settle into your new role, and I can almost guarantee that within weeks you will start to wonder why you did not volunteer years ago.

There really is a role for everyone.

Lots of people state that they would like to give something back to their community – but they don’t know how. Volunteering to help in Bromley Scouts is a perfect way.

If you want to find out more about helping Bromley Scouts as an adult please complete this form and we will be in touch.

Below is a list of some of the roles we are always on the look out for


We need section leaders and assistant leaders across all age groups, its hugely rewarding, and in many cases you get to take part in many of the activities – for example we own and operate a fleet of canoes and Kayaks, but don’t panic if that’s not your cup of tea you don’t have to take part.

If you didn’t want the commitment of being a leader or assistant leader but still wanted to help in the youth sections then you might like to consider becoming a sectional assistant or occasional helper. You can see the difference in the roles by clicking here. Where a membership fee is required this is paid by the group on your behalf so don’t let that put you off.

Support Roles

Committee members – to help with the management of the District or an individual group. The management committee (or Executive Committee as we call it) is a little like a school board of governors and plays a vital role in supporting the provision of Scouting.

Property and Ground maintenance – Bromley Scouts own and operate a 8 acre campsite including 30 bed residential accommodation . This is maintained by volunteers and we are always looking for assistance in completing practical jobs on and around the campsite.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
