One of the beauties about scouting is that everyone can get involved in a number of different ways!
We are constantly on the look out for:
Help with fundraising
Skills that can be shared with cubs and/or scouts
Also, it is part of our constitution to have a “Parents and Friends Committee”. This is a committee consists of a mix of parents and friends of scouting. The committee plan, initiates and control fundraising and have an input into how the Unit is run.

As a parent it’s natural that you would want to be assured of their child’s safety and welfare wherever they are. As an organisation we are committed to ensuring that our youth members learn, develop and have fun in a safe and secure environment. To this end we have developed robust child protection, recruitment and selection policies and procedures. These policies and procedures are consistent with National child protection policy and with good practice guidelines in the Youth Work sector in the Republic and in Northern Ireland.
Our ‘Code of Good Practice’ outlines our child protection policies and procedures.We are happy to discuss any queries you may have in relation to the implementation of these procedures.
All new applicant Scouters go through a vetting process. Applicant Scouters must provide 2 references and must go through formal police checking (Garda Vetting or Access Northern Ireland checking). In addition, all new Scouters must undertake a child protection training course during their Induction period. This training is accredited and monitored by the National Youth Council of Ireland.
