Keeping young people safe is our primary aim in scouting. Having fun, doing adventurous and new things comes a close second. 

A range of resources are available, covering all areas that affect safety in scouting, with the intention of providing clear and practical guidance as well as promoting a strong culture of safety throughout the Movement.
