Safeguarding

It is the policy of The Scout Association to safeguard the welfare of all members by protecting them from neglect and from physical, sexual and emotional harm.

ALL adults in Scouting are subject to a mandatory check from the Disclosure and Disbarring Service  and the appointment of Leaders follows a rigorous regime of taking up references and interviews.

We are committed to:

  • Taking the interests and well-being of young people into account, in all our considerations and activities.
  • Respecting the rights, wishes and feelings of the young people with whom we work.
  • Taking all reasonable practicable steps to protect them from neglect, physical, sexual and emotional abuse.
  • Promoting the welfare of young people and their protection within a position of trust.

All adults in Scouting are responsible for putting this policy into practice at all times.

All adults MUST adhere to the Yellow Card 'Young People First' code of Practice.

All adults in Scouting undergo mandatory Safeguarding training which MUST be renewed every three years.

Training

All leaders take courses in basic first aid and child protection. 

Outings and camps

All leaders taking young people on outings or camps will give you notice in writing, ask for your permission and provide you with a method of contacting the group while they are away. We will never ask to take individual young people away on their own or without another adult being present. Training is provided for all Leaders taking young people away on residential events like camps and sleepovers.
