Youth Safe Advocates (YSA) Scheme

Our Youth Safe Advocates (YSA) scheme provides support for youth members by providing them with a safe environment where they are aware of their rights to feel safe and can speak openly about any issues and concerns they may have.

Our trained panel of Youth Safe Advocates attend Scout activities and events across the State to promote Child Safe messaging, listen to concerns and provide support from those concerned about their own safety, or the safety of another member.

Each Youth Safe Advocate has undergone extensive online training by the Office of the Children’s Guardian, as well as training with Scouts, so they understand how to take disclosures and report them appropriately.
