COVID-19 Risk assessments update

22 July 2021

Following the recent updates to restrictions in England, many of the legal restrictions unique to the youth sector are no longer in place.

HQ are now removing the requirement to have COVID-19 risk assessments approved by District or County Commissioners. Groups and sections must still document COVID-19 risks assessments, but like all other risks that we manage every day, it can be agreed within the Group itself (and within the District team for Explorer Units and Scout Networks). For general section meetings, there’s no longer a requirement for parent or carer consent to our COVID-19 secure methods.
