Adjustments for members with disabilities

Adjustments for members with disabilities

The Scouts have a robust Equal Opportunities Policy, which outlines our commitment to ensuring that the Movement is open and accessible to all. Within this policy, we also have a commitment to make reasonable adjustments for members with disabilities to equally access Scouting.

This is applicable to The Adult Training Scheme. For any adult who may be physically unable to administer first aid (e.g. provide CPR or move someone into the recovery position), a suitable reasonable adjustment for an assessor would be that the learner demonstrates they are independently able to successfully instruct/direct another adult (without the skills or knowledge) to physically provide the care on their behalf.
