Child Safety

Wherever we go and whatever we do, we put young people’s safety and wellbeing first.

At Scouts NSW, our responsibility to ensure the safety of our Youth Members extends to the online environment as well as face-to-face, physically. While we may not be conducting face-to-face Scouting activities for the meantime, our Child Safety principles still apply for all interactions with Youth Members, whether they be online or via phone.

Please ensure you maintain polite and respectful interactions online and take the time to refresh your memory by reading the following resources so you know exactly what is expected of you when communicating with others in Scouting online.
