The Scout Association suspended face-to-face activities from 17 March 2020 in response to the Prime Minister requesting that everyone in the UK should now avoid non-essential travel and contact with others.
Since then we have been thinking about, planning for, and learning creative ways to continue adult training at home. We’re here to support our volunteers. Some of them are key-workers and we thank them. Some are still at work, possibly at home. Some have child-care issues now that the schools are closed. Others have found their work suspended and are able to do some catch-up scouting activities which may include training. The training team are trying to provide opportunities and ways for our volunteers to stay connected.
Here’s our own dashboard showing what we’ve achieved here in Dorset.
