Safety

Doing things safely is fundamental to everything we do in Scouting and our responsibilities are highlighted in the Safety Policy in chapter 2 of POR , (the Policy, Organisation and Rules of the Scout Association).

It should become a natural way of thinking, rather than an ‘add-on’ to our planning. Training All adults in Scouting undertake training which includes content to help them deliver safe Scouting

Safeguarding

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, including members of the Scout Network who wish to work with young people, are responsible for putting this policy into practice at all times. An adult in Scouting has a responsibility to ensure that young people are protected from harm.

Essential information for all Adults in Scouting is summaried on "YOUNG PEOPLE FIRST Safeguarding – a code of practice" - YELLOW CARD -?

It is the responsibility of each adult in Scouting to ensure that:

  • Their behaviour is appropriate at all times.
  • They observe the rules established for the safety and security of young people.
  • They follow the procedures following suspicion, disclosure or allegation of child abuse.
  • They recognise the position of trust in which they have been placed.
  • In every respect, the relationships they form with the young people under their care are appropriate.
