Our Volunteers & Staff

Scouting is a volunteer led organisation.

At a Regional level, the Region is managed and run by The Regional Team which is made up of volunteers who provide support to Scout Groups and Districts across the Region, in their particular area of speciality/expertise

The Regional Commissioner and her team are supported by a small employed staff in the Regional Office, at Auchengillan Outdoor Centre and The Glasgow Scout Shop.

To contact a member of the team by email, click on their name or click here to have an email passed to them if there is no hyperlink to their direct email address.

Please note that the email addresses on this page are to enable volunteers in local Scout Groups and Districts to make contact with the Regional Team and they must not be used for commercial purposes.
