Our Cub waiting list (8-10.5 years old) is currently closed to new applicants.

Those already on the waiting list will remain on the list.


Keeping young people safe

The first night away from home. The first hike. The first trip abroad.

These moments are great for developing young people’s confidence. We know how daunting it can be to pack their overnight bag and wave them off. We know it doesn’t get easier as they grow. 

Young people thrive in secure surroundings. Wherever we go, we’re serious about keeping them safe. 

As a parent or carer, you may have questions about how we do this. Find out more.

As a volunteer, the Scout website has lots of information on staying safe and safeguarding.

What if you have concerns about safeguarding?

Please see The Scout Association’s guidance if you have any safeguarding concerns.
