We’ve often talked about volunteering to support young people directly or asked for help with administrative roles at the group. There’s another collective of volunteers who make all the difference with building maintenance, pre/post-event tasks and engaging with other community organisations to achieve a common goal. At Penistone, these people are the “Falcons”.

The Falcons are adults who want to support the group. They volunteer in a flexible way that suits them and do so as part of a Scout Active Support unit. Active Support is open to everyone aged 18 and over, with regular or irregular opportunities available.

Perhaps you’re great at DIY, a handy-person or have professional skills such as electrical, plumbing or groundskeeping? Are you a painter, a decorator or a dab hand at organising, maintaining or refreshing equipment?
