Scout Active Support is for anyone over the age of 18 years. It is a way for adults to volunteer time to Scouting in a flexible way that suits them. East Lancashire is now served by a range of Active Support Units who provide valuable back up, advice and practical support at all levels of Scouting around the County. You can learn about each of these units below.
