Adult Recruitment

Welcome to the Wetherby District Scouts support page for adult recruitment, which is open to everyone. It is intended to be a useful source of advice and information for anyone involved in recruiting adults into scouting.

We held a successful recruitment workshop on 14th September and more information can be found on our SharePoint site here. It includes the presentation from Elizabeth Wells, the Central Yorkshire Growth and Development Officer, and the pack of handouts given to all participants.

The pack includes links to the wealth of recruitment support and materials available on The Scouts website and brand centre. A good place to start is the recruitment ‘Top Tips’  and the ‘Are You Recruitment Ready’ self-assessment tool.

Central Yorkshire Scouts also have growth and development resources available to support you with recruiting and retaining adult volunteers here

Wetherby District wants to help you with adult recruitment in any way we can. We intend to develop the information over time and would welcome your feedback. Please let us have any comments on the information provided and anything else you would like to see covered by contacting You can also contact us via this email address if you would like any further advice or support.

If you have any issues accessing the information on the SharePoint site, please email Support

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