Reporting a concern to safeguarding
Whilst all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events are suspended, 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.
Information on the safeguarding process is removed for review and is coming soon.
