Reporting a concern to safeguarding
You have the right to report any concerns about young people or adults in confidence and free from harassment.
Whilst we're still subject to various restrictions for meeting face to face within the Scouts, the Safeguarding Team are aiming to keep their service 'business as usual' as far as possible in the current climate. They recognise that there may be subjects who await outcomes to remove them from suspension and in these uncertain times, the safeguarding process may add to their anxiety. Therefore, the team propose that Commissioners utilise technology available to them to continue with necessary parts of the safeguarding process.
