Parent Helpers

As the ebb and flow of ‘full time’ Adult Leaders swings, we sometimes need Parent Helper in order to keep the right ratios of adults to safely supervise the young people within Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. These scouting rules are fixed for trips away from HQ. When we are at HQ, we just need to know that we have enough adults to make sure the meeting is safe.

We’d welcome your involvement occasionally.

All adults helping with cubs MUST be aware of and follow our Code of Practice. Please make sure you read and are happy to work within the code: Scouts put Young People First. Here is our Code of Conduct aka The Yellow Card

Particularly note:

  • Scouting is always a group activity, we and you never plan to be in a one to one situation with a young person
  • As a Parent Helper, you should never be with cubs unaccompanied by an appointed leader
  • Please only sign up to help when your are familiar with the Code and happy to abide by it
  • Please do contact your Section Leader if you have any questions
