Guidance and Support around Coronavirus.

Following the announcement of a four-week lockdown in England from Thursday 5 November, the National Youth Agency (NYA) has now issued guidance about what this means for all youth sector activity. Scouts and all other youth activities have moved to Red readiness level.
This decision by the Government means that there can be no face-to-face activity with young people or adult volunteers. Only online meetings can be delivered until further notice.

Read more here about the current restrictions and the requirements and actions to be taken for the safe return to face-to-face scouting.

Leaders can submit their Covid-19 re-start risk assessments for approval via Smartform here.

Leaders can notify TSA about a confirmed positive case, who has attended a face-to-face activity within the previous 14 days, via the online incident reporting Smartform here.

Delivering a Flexible Programme During Covid-19
Young people can work towards badges and awards while at home, on-line, or as face-to-face scouting returns. TSA guidance on making the rules more flexible including example activities for all sections and scenarios can be found here.

Activity Risk Assessments
Moving forward, risks must be documented. Changes to the requirements for risk assessments were made by TSA in August 2020. Guidance on creating risk assessments; a useful short video presentation to aid your understanding; and example activity risk assessments can be found here.

Leicestershire Scouts is providing everyday adventure for an ever-growing number of young people and adults.

Join us to take part in exciting opportunities and activities in Leicestershire, across the UK and abroad!

All this is not just for the young people but can also be for the adults that work with them to make it all possible
