Guidance and support for frequently asked questions (FAQ's)

Last reviewed: 25 June 14.27

Given the Government’s guidance, all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events have been suspended from Tuesday, 17 March 2020. 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.

Bringing everyone back together safely – starting to prepare

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 when the readiness level reduces from red.

There is a framework and set of guidance on how elements of face to face Scouts could take place and the safety measures we would need to take into account.
