Return to Face-to-Face Scouting

Date: 8th Sep 2020 Author: Robert

A new framework has been released giving guidance on how elements of face-to-face Scouting can now take place and detailing the safety measures that we need to take into account.

The Scouts Framework is aligned with Government-approved guidance for the Youth Sector developed by the National Youth Agency. This framework will apply in every nation within UK Scouting and covers:

  • the permissions process for restarting any face-to-face activity
  • the key considerations needed to be ready to restart face-to-face activities and how these will be phased in
  • legal and liability conditions
  • key control measures for everyone to follow

Full details can be found here, including what state we are in (Red, Amber, Yellow or Green):

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
