Scouts at home
While we’re not meeting face to face, you can still carry on with Scouts
As the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) causes schools to close and many people to isolate, these are challenging times for everyone. But it’s been heart-warming to see Scouts across the UK responding in such positive ways. The prospect of keeping up with connecting, learning and helping, feels like a way to maintain a sense of community and lightness during this time.
Please keep up that Scouts’ spirit. We’ll be sharing more details on how to keep Scouts going at home, so we can bring young people together virtually and still help out in our communities.
There are lots of activities that young people can do at home by themselves or with other family members. Scouts can still work towards badges and award too.
You can still stay connected with your groups online. Keeping everyone safe is the number one concern for all of us at the Scouts, so make yourself familiar with our safety online guidelines.
It’s been heart-warming to see so many of you responding to this crisis in such positive ways. We’re going to be asking young people to decide on an action Scouts across the country can take together as a movement. Watch this space.
What are your ideas?
We’re trying to find and share the best ways for Scouts to continue, within families and virtually, as well as collating practical and safe ways to help people in our communities. We’d love to get your input on the best ways to help us do this.Submit your ideas here
