Keeping Young Leaders and young people safe

Young Leaders have a position of responsibility, but they’re still aged under 18, so adult volunteers need to follow the ‘Yellow Card Young People First’ code of practice (download it here or order it from Scout Store) and Safety and Child Protection Policies. Young Leaders count as young people (not adults) for ratios, and if you’re staying anywhere overnight they need separate accommodation from both the young people in the section and the adult volunteers. The Orange Card is the ‘Young People First’ code of practice for Young Leaders (download it here or order it from Scout Store) – make sure all Young Leaders have a copy, and that they understand it too.
