Support for Children and Young People - Talking to Children, Dealing with Anxiety, Posters, Hygiene
It is important to remember that the safety of young people and adult volunteers comes first while carrying out activities. Scout leaders should ensure that everyone, including the beneficiaries of their actions, are always safe from harm, e.g. Scouts should also refrain from engaging in direct care or transportation of sick persons without proper training.
