The safety of both young people and adults is important. A large part of this is about being organised, asking the right questions and doing things that will help safety without taking away a sense of adventure appropriate to the age group.
Below are some links to appropriate pages on scouts.org.uk to help you to keep everyone in your Section safe.
In order to get back together again when COVID-19 restrictions will allow in our area, Leaders are required to follow a five step process. Visit the following webpage where you’ll be guided through all of the information you need to know to get your section back together safely.
Safety Checklist for Leaders
This is a straight-forward checklist that can be dealt with quickly and easily.
Incidents and Illness
This section gives guidance on what to do in case of an incident, including first aid and reporting.
Doing things safely is fundamental to everything we do in Scouting.
This guidance is to help you minimise risk both before and during an activity or event.
Example Risk Assessments
It’s sometimes daunting starting from a blank page, so we’ve provided some example risk assessments to help get you thinking about what you may include in yours, or how this may look.
Reporting a concern to safeguarding
It’s the policy of The Scouts to safeguard the welfare of all members by protecting them from neglect and from physical, sexual and emotional harm. Read more on reporting a concern to safeguarding here
