We’ve started a new section for four and five year olds called Squirrels, to help young people gain skills for life at a time when it matters most and where it’s most needed.

Benefits of Joining Squirrels

Squirrels is a brand new provision for 4–5 year olds. There are plenty of reasons to get stuck in as Squirrels gives young people the chance to:

  • Make friends
  • Have fun outdoors
  • Learn new things
  • Earn badges through fun activities

Squirrels Dreys are launching now, with the first Dreys at the 5th (Nelson Street) and the 32nd (Bank Street). Squirrels might not be open in your community just yet, but you can still register your interest in volunteering with Squirrels now.

Everything you need to know about Squirrels

Take a sneak peek at our uniform and badges and see what we’re doing to make sure everyone is safe and included.

Will you be our next Squirrel volunteer?

Volunteering’s not just about giving back – the benefits go both ways. All of our activities are run by amazing volunteers. Volunteering lets you try new things, meet new people and make a difference. We know that volunteering is #GoodForYou because when you volunteer, you’ll:

  • Do something good for your community and yourself
  • Gain skills for the future
  • Spend time with your children or gain experience with young people
  • Make friends
  • Make memories

Volunteering will keep your body and brain active as you make a huge difference to young people’s lives – helping them develop skills for life and learn a whole lot about themselves along the way.

It doesn’t matter if you want to get involved regularly or help out occasionally – we can find the right fit for you.
