Scout Premises Safety Audits

Date: 17th Jul 2021 Author: Steve Way

If you have an Executive Committee role, and are therefore a Charity Trustee, you should have received information about a new Scout Premises Safety Audit process. All the information and the audit tool can be found here and there is a recorded webinar here which explains further.

If your Group, Unit or District own premises of any sort you need to undertake this audit at least once a year. If you use a church or school hall, you need to find out if the owners are doing similar checks and ask to see the evidence.

If you have any questions, contact the County Safety Advisor, Stephen Way – he can be reached on
