County Safeguarding Adviser

Dorset Scouts needs someone to promote and advise on a safeguarding culture in all aspects of what we do. Could you advise on digital safeguarding practices or how to make premises suitable? Could you provide support to our volunteers on best practice whether that’s sections, trustees or campsites.

Formal Safeguarding qualifications are not required but experience of the issues within Scouts is essential. This role is not expected to manage or be involved in local cases nor to deliver training.

If you are interested in this role, please email us at telling us why you would like to volunteer in this role and how your knowledge and experience will help. We look forward to hearing from you.


County Communications Manager

We all know that effective communications are critical to the successful delivery of Scouting. With this in mind, the County Commissioner wants to place a significant focus on how we can use communications effectively together to achieve amazing Scouting across Dorset. This role will involve:

  • Helping adults get the information they need, when they need it

  • Working with the County team to develop a communication strategy that reflects our National and County brand and tone of voice

  • Working with our online team and County Office to develop our outward facing website and our information for our adults in Scouting

  • Liaise with Districts to support County-wide communication strategy

Please submit your application form to

Dorset Scouting supports flexible volunteering where we will look to shape roles around the volunteers who are willing to do them. If interested, and the key responsibilities are something that you believe you can support, then please do apply and find out more.

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