Youth Member Anti-Bullying Policy

2.7.1.1 “Children have the right to protection from all forms of violence (physical or mental).  They must be kept safe from harm and they must be given proper care by those looking after them.”  [The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 19]

2.7.1.2 The Scout Association is committed to this ethos and seeks to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the prevention of all forms of bullying among members.  To this end all scouting activities should have in place rigorous anti-bullying strategies.
