As adults in Scouts, the safety of young people is our priority. We are committed to:
Taking the interests and well-being of young people into account, in all our considerations and activities.
Respecting the rights, wishes and feelings of the young people with whom we work.
Taking all reasonable practicable steps to protect them from neglect, physical, sexual and emotional abuse.
Promoting the welfare of young people and their protection within a position of trust.
The Young People First code of practice (also known as the yellow card) sets out a code of behaviour for all adults in Scouts.
