Coronavirus Update (20/03)

16 March 2020

With advice from the UK Government, the UK Scout Association has provided this statement.

“all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events must be suspended from tomorrow, Tuesday, 17 March 2020. This suspension applies to young people and adults, and will be until further notice.”

We will continue to respond to the developing situation in a calm, measured and appropriate way, following official guidance. The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority.

During this time of uncertainty, we are encouraging our members to maintain the scouting values of Integrity, Respect, Care, Belief and Co-Operation.

We will soon be releasing resources which provide guidance to our Adult Volunteers and Young people to achieve scout badges whilst away from the regular weekly meetings, we will update this page once these resources come available.

Update 20/03

We have distributed a district update to our GSL’s to be shared within their leadership teams. Please observe this email and contact us if you require any further support in the coming weeks, and we will support where possible.
