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:
- Guidance on Photography, video and audio recording at Scout events
- Guidance on using Emails and Online messaging
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 7 printed 2018) which is a summary of our Best Practice.
