Staying Safe Online:
Remember the Yellow Card if doing online/virtual Scouting. Still needs to have 2 adults, never talk to a Young Person 1 to 1. Think about what is going on in the background when online.
Any concerns about a Young Person still follow Yellow Card.
Mod K training in June has been cancelled. County will hopefully organise another training session. If face to face Scouting not started again in September we will have to consider virtual training.
