As a parent it’s natural that you would want to be assured of their child’s safety and welfare wherever they are. As an organisation we are committed to ensuring that our youth members learn, develop and have fun in a safe and secure environment. To this end we have developed robust child protection, recruitment and selection policies and procedures. These policies and procedures are consistent with National child protection policy and with good practice guidelines in the Youth Work sector in the Republic and in Northern Ireland.
Our ‘Code of Good Practice’ outlines our child protection policies and procedures.
Your local Scout Group will be happy to discuss any queries you may have in relation to the implementation of these procedures at local level.
All new applicant Scouters (Leaders) go through a vetting process. Applicant Scouters (Leaders) must provide 2 references and must go through formal police checking (Garda Vetting). In addition, all new Scouters must undertake a child protection training course during their Induction period. This training is accredited and monitored by the National Youth Council of Ireland.
If you would like more information or have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact one of the Leaders.
All information is treated with the utmost confidentiality.
