Safe from Harm has always been and still is a key priority for the Scout Movement. It is essential that we do everything to build a safe environment for all, that enables the self-development of young people as well as the creation of positive and healthy interpersonal relationships. The World Safe from Harm Policy is the framework supporting us in this mission.
It is the responsibility of all of us to take action and ensure that everything is done to protect children and young people from any harm or abuse. One incident of abuse is already too many! Each National Scout Organization (NSO) is encouraged to take all necessary steps to make the safety of young people a priority through their structures and educational programmes.
It is a global commitment to support our NSOs to implement Safe from Harm in all Scouting activities.
