Wherever we go and whatever we do, Scouts NSW puts young people’s safety and wellbeing first. Our aim is to create a safe and secure environment where every child understands they have a right to feel safe.
Scouts NSW has a zero-tolerance policy towards abuse. Child Protection is our number one priority and is everyone’s responsibility.
At Scouts NSW:
- All Leaders are thoroughly screened, undergo a NSW Police check, and must hold a valid, verified Working with Children Check.
- Adult Leaders receive comprehensive, ongoing training across a range of subjects including leadership, WHS, and Child Protection.
- At least one person trained in first aid attends all major events.
- At least two adults are present at all meetings and events.
- We will liaise with you to ensure we have the information necessary to cater for your child’s individual medical, physical and dietary requirements.
