Young People First – Safeguarding In Scouting

All adults in Dorset are guided by The Scout Association’s policies and procedures. There is much support material that adults can reference. It includes:

If an adult needs immediate advice about a possible safeguarding issue, please call HQ and ask for the safeguarding team. Also contact your DC or the CC.

All adults undergo training, initially as part of their Getting Started training and then refresher training every 3 years.

All adults should regularly review their Yellow Card (version 8 1Jan2024) which is a summary of our Best Practice.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
