It is the policy of The Scout Association to safeguard the welfare of all members by protecting them from physical, sexual and emotional harm.
The Scout Association is committed to:
The overriding considerations in making all appointments in Scouting shall be the safety and security of young people, and their continued development in accordance with the Purpose and Values of the Association. Accordingly, all those whom the Movement accepts as volunteers must be appropriate persons to undertake the duties of the particular position to which they have been appointed.
