Safety advice on Scout uniform
27/05/2017 By Daniel Tillin


The Scout Information Centre has received queries from the Movement seeking guidance on wearing Scout uniform whilst travelling to/from section meetings and during activities that take place in public, given the heightened threat level. Having engaged with the statutory authorities’ counter terrorism security functions it has been ascertained that presently there is no specific intelligence placing young people wearing a Scout or similar uniform at heightened risk. Adults should continue to risk assess section meetings, and make any necessary proportionate changes to arrangements for the wearing of uniform to/from section meetings and/or whilst undertaking activities.



As ever in these times, young people and adults should remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the authorities (through the anti-terrorism hotline on 0800 789 321)
