Planning a safe return to face to face Scouts

17 June 2020

Given the Government’s guidance, all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events are suspended. This suspension applies to young people and adults, and will be until further notice. We will continue to follow official guidance. The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority. That is always at the heart of our decision making.

As lockdown measures start to ease we are working with youth sector partners and the National Youth Agency government body to understand what a safe return to face to face Scouts may look like.

We are preparing a framework and set of guidance proposals on how elements of face to face Scouts could take place if the alert level in the nation was deemed low enough, and the safety measures we would need to take into account.

Please remember, face to face Scouts is still suspended – but we are preparing guidance in readiness for a time where restrictions may ease enough to allow it.
