Welcome

Welcome to East Surrey District Scouts!

AMBER!!

As of Wednesday 2nd December TSA will return to AMBER readiness. The Government and the National Youth Agency have confirmed that youth clubs and activities WILL be permitted at all three tiers in England, as “services such as Scouts are essential to the development and wellbeing of young people, and should continue wherever possible.”
This means that as of Thursday this week, those with approved risk assessments:
  1. Can meet with up to 15 young people (aged under 18), plus 5 adults.
  2. The session can take place outdoors or indoors, but must be socially distanced.
Face coverings should be worn by anyone of Scout-age plus when indoors. Adults delivering an activity to young people aren’t required to wear a face covering.
However, face to face programme activities for members of Scouts who are over 18 is in Red everywhere in England. Other volunteers over the age of 18 can meet in-line with restrictions in your tier for adults meeting together, to carry out essential volunteering tasks like campsite or building maintenance.

Remember:

  • No face to face activity can take place until you have done all the preparations to ensure a safe return, and these written risk assessments and plans have been approved locally.
  • Residential activities and international trips are not currently permitted.
  • Read all the guidance and steps that need to be taken before any face to face activity can resume.
