Volunteer Week 2021

This past week we have been meeting just some of our amazing leaders from around the towns Scout Groups and some of the District Team.

Without them Scouting wouldn’t be available to our young people here in Darlington. We have a great set of adult volunteers around the district not just those shown below.

We have a large waiting list for young people to join our many groups around town, but we still need more leaders, if you want to become a leader then email us @

If we can get enough leaders we may be able to open new groups to accommodate the young people in Darlington on our waiting lists.
