Please take time to familiarise yourself with the new safety pages of Member Resources, accessible at www.scouts.org.uk/safety. The pages are a key resource for all volunteers and include information about risk assessment tools, safe premises and campsites, near miss forms and Safe Scouting and Emergency Procedures (Purple Card). There is also an archive page where you can access any past communications around safety in Scouting.

It has been updated to help improve Scouting’s culture of safety following pre-launch feedback from members. More information on the revised POR can be found here.
