Child & Youth Protection
SCOUTS New Zealand takes health and safety and child & youth protection very seriously. Our Better Prepared strategic plan includes the key priority of Youth at the Centre, with a focus on keeping our youth safe from harm.
Please review our Code of Conduct and Child & Youth Protection Policy (in line with the Vulnerable Children Act 2014). We also have a social networking policy to help keep our members safe online, and this is also linked below.
NOTE TO MEMBERS: If any member has child protection concerns, they are encouraged to call 0508SCOUTHELP to speak to the duty executive and report concerns immediately.
