How we keep your child safe in Scouting

Scouting offers fun, challenge and adventure to nearly 400,000 young people in the UK. We know that young people thrive in safe surroundings so we are committed to making sure that Scouting is enjoyable and safe for everyone who takes part.

As a parent or carer, you will have questions about how we do this, and we hope to provide the answers in our Safe and Sound’ leaflet.

If you have a concern or question regarding safeguarding in Scouting or have a concern regarding a young person or volunteer, you can call the information centre on 0345 300 1818 or email, whereby your call can be directed to our dedicated Safeguarding Team.

More information available in the Information for Parents section.
