A lot of work has been going on behind the scenes to get out young people back face to face scouting as safely as possible. Following the rules set out by The Scout Association and The National Youth Agency (NYA), we have planned, risk assessed and prepared to start moving back face to face.

The NYA have created guidance and a traffic light system for us to follow, more information can be found on the scout association website here.
