Hi, I work for The Scouts UK. As a UK wide volunteer organisation, I am keen to know if you have any support specifically to support volunteers to diversify their reach in their community.

Dear Juliette, 
It is great to hear about your commitment to The Scouts UK.
Supporting volunteers is one of the most important parts of community work.  It is also a component of community work that is difficult to distill into writing.  Here is a section of the Community Tool Box that addresses some aspects of volunteer support:
I also believe that you may be interested in increasing diversity and inclusion in your efforts.  I recommend looking at the following Troubleshooting Guide, especially section four organized around the guiding question, “Have we created conditions that will allow the greatest diversity of people and organizations to participate?”

My best wishes to you in expanding your reach,
