Parents

Support for Parents

We've pulled together lots of useful information for parents in the list of links on the left hand side of this page. Our section leader team are also always on hand to answer questions and support parents of our young people. Please get in touch, we're able to chat about financial support to help make scouting more affordable, to help with where to put badges and to make sure your scout has loads of fun and enjoys scouting safely.

Support the Group

Parents are incredibly important to what we do, from supporting your child to get the most from scouting to dipping your toe in the water as an adult volunteer, parents and carers off so much to the group. We're a growing group where many of our volunteers are parents, so if you can help us do more, we'd like to hear from you, there are many ways you can support without committing every week..

Become a leader:-

Many of our leader team are parents who choose to get involved to spend more time with their children and to learn some skills themselves. Why not talk to a member of our leader team or email gsl@4thwashingtonscouts.org.uk for an informal chat.

Demonstrate a skill:-

If you have a particular skill which we could use within the group whether you can juggle and help us with circus skills badge or you can show scouts how to service a car, we'd like your help. Please contact the group scout leader via the contact us link.
