Safety in Scouting
Parents take the safety of their children seriously – and so do we.
At Scouts NSW, our aim is to create a safe and secure environment where every young person understands they have a right to feel safe. Youth protection is our number one priority and is everyone’s responsibility. This is demonstrated in our Safeguarding Commitment Statement.
"Scouts NSW is committed to safeguarding youth in our care."
"Scouts NSW is committed to creating an environment
where all our members feel safe, supported and protected."
Keeping our youth safe
Scouts NSW has a zero-tolerance policy towards abuse. It is important that every adult and child in Scouting in NSW is aware of and familiar with the Scouts NSW Youth Protection Policy and Procedure and understands who they can approach and the appropriate steps to take, should any form of abuse be brought to their attention.
Everyone has the right to feel safe
If you have a concern about a child protection issue or the conduct of anyone in Scouting, please don’t hesitate to contact our child protection team at the Scouts NSW State Service Centre.
