Online activities - If you’re not meeting face-to-face because of the coronavirus pandemic, you can still stay connected with your section/Group/unit online. COVID-19 doesn’t have to stop you trying new things, learning skills, and working towards badges and awards, over 41.6 million minutes of Scouts sessions have been run online already.

Scout at Home - scouts.org.uk activities at home

Basingstoke East District have developed 'Scout at Home' online tool which enables young people to continue completing badges at home. Groups from across the UK are welcome to sign up - badges.bescouts.org.uk

Restart risk assessments - Before you restart face-to-face activities, you need to have a COVID-19 safe risk assessment that’s been agreed by your line manager. This is separate to your activity risk assessments; it just deals with controlling risks related to the spread of COVID-19.

Activity risk assessments - You also need to risk assess your activities as normal (and document it). This doesn’t need to be approved, but it’s good to share it with your Group Scout Leader.
