There are many ways in which adults can volunteer in Scouting.

If you feel you may be able to help, in any capacity, then please visit Get Involved or contact the District Commissioner, Simon Clark, who will be able to provide advice and connect you with your local Group, Explorer Scout Unit or discuss options where you may be able to help on a broader basis (for example, at a District Level).
