Activity Risk Assessment Support

Date: 31st March 2021 Location: Virtual
Keeping young people safe is our primary aim in Scouting. Having fun, doing adventurous and new things comes a close second. This means we are always looking to review and improve the guidance and support for members in keeping Scouts as safe as possible.

There’s always been a requirement to undertake risk assessments for all activities within the Scouts, whether in your normal meeting place, on nights away or out on adventurous activities with the encouragement to document them.

From January 2021 all risk assessments will need to be documented and shared with everyone involved. These will then need to be regularly reviewed and amended as necessary.

To help with this change, we are providing an online webinar to cover activity risk assessments, why we have them and where to find the information and resources to support you writing, recording, and sharing them. We will talk through the changes in this area, and you will be able to ask questions.

This will be particularly relevant for: Group Scout Leaders, Section Leaders, Assistant Leaders and any roles related to safety.

Details to join the session will be sent 24 hours before the event.

For any questions, please contact the team at safescouting@somersetscouts.org.uk
