Young People First

New versions of Young People First (commonly referred to as the Yellow Card, and the Orange Card for Young Leaders) will be released on 1 March as an easier to carry and understand card.

Whilst there are no rule changes, the code of behaviour is more succinct and places greater emphasis on a shared responsibility to report all concerns. Please ensure that all adult volunteers and Young Leaders swap their current cards for the latest version as soon as possible. Please highlight the new card with your team, parents and the young people in your Groups.

The cards will be communicated to members on 12 February and available from Scout Store from 1 March. Any copies of the cards on your local websites will need to be updated. Please contact your County Safeguarding Awareness Coordinator for further support and advice.
