National Safe from Harm Policy - Guidelines on how to build a SfH strategy in NSO/NSA
We’re pleased to share the new Guidelines on building a Safe from Harm strategy!
These guidelines can be used by National Scout Organizations and Associations to develop or review their national Safe from Harm policies, and also set a plan to implement Safe from Harm at all levels of Scouting.
The National Safe from Harm Policy is a statement of intent and is implemented as a procedure or protocol. It specifies the rules, guidelines, measures, and procedures that the organisation requires from all involved and in all areas of work. The policy also reflects the values and ethics of the NSO. It sets a minimum level of implementation consistent with the expected performance of the organisation for the World Safe from Harm Policy. The policy should complement other National policies, guidelines, and procedures.
