Safety in Scouting

Outdoor activities, adventure and learning by doing continues to remain at the core of what Scouting excels in and young people seek.

We strongly believe that success lies in enhancing the culture of safety, such as an awareness of risk and responsibilities, and the skills to assess and manage those risks by adults and young people.

All adults in Scouting who are subject to an appointment review are required to complete approved safety training at least every five years.

The Scout Association’s ongoing safety training e-learning is an online alternative to face-to-face training. this can be found here.
