Blog | Adult Helpers Needed!
By Rebecca Bennett-Wilding

5th Risca is run 100% by volunteers and in order for us to continue and grow, we need adult helpers to come and join us.

Scouting is currently seeing the biggest demand to join us since World War 2 and as a popular group, we certainly have seen our waiting lists expand over the last year.  We would love to ask all young people to join us but due to our regulations, we have to adhere to strict adult to child ratios which means that we can't unless more adults come and help us.


What Would I Do As A Volunteer?

There is a role to suit everyone!  We have flexible roles where you can help out as and when and more regular roles in one of our sections or on our Executive Committee.  Here are some examples of some of the tasks you could get involved with:

  •  Fundraising/applying for grants
  • Updating our website and social media
  • Buying supplies
  • Running games
  • Preparing the squash and biscuits during the meetings
  • Cleaning the hut/maintaining the grounds
  • Group admin support
  • Attending camps or trips 
  • Organising events


We are an inclusive organisation and welcome volunteers from all walks of life; you don't need to be 'outdoorsy' or physically fit to join us.  

All volunteers will be offered a uniform/group t shirt and will have access to free training and the opportunity to gain activity permits in areas such as archery and tomahawk throwing.

To express an interest, or to have an informal chat, please contact us: 537315
