Taking Scouts online

There are many different platforms you can use to communicate with young people and families online

Although we’ve had to stop our face-to-face meetings during the coronavirus pandemic, you can still stay connected with your groups online –  trying new activities, learning new skills and working towards badges and awards.

Keeping everyone safe is the number one concern for all of us at the Scouts. That’s why we all need to continue to follow the Code of Behaviour set out in the Yellow Card when connecting with young people online. Please ensure you read our guidance on staying safe online.

As always, if a volunteer has any concerns about a young person’s welfare (including their online experiences), they must follow the reporting process set out in the Yellow Card.
