Delivering a flexible programme during COVID-19

Young people can still work towards badges and awards while at home. Here's our guidance on making the rules more flexible.

Why we're adapting the programme

As volunteers, you’re best placed to help us adapt the programme so that young people stay safe and keep learning, and we can continue to recognise their hard work and achievements. Currently, government advice is that everyone in the UK should avoid non-essential travel and contact with others. Given this guidance, all face-to-face meetings, activities, expeditions and events remain suspended until further notice. This guidance on programme flexibility should help you decide which programme changes to consider and make clear any rules or guidance that must still be followed.
