Child Safe Scouting
Child Safe Scouting Statement
Scouts Victoria is a child safe organisation with zero-tolerance for any harm, abuse or neglect. We value the diversity of our members, including gender, sexuality, race, religion and ability.
While we are Scouting at Home we have looked at how we can be a Child Safe Organisation. We have created resources to help our youth members, parents, families and Leaders.
Visit our Scouting at Home resources page for our Child Safety advice for parents, youth members and Leaders. We even have manuals on how to run safe and enjoyable meetings online.
If you are a Joey, Cub, Scout or Venturer and unsure what to do, you can speak to a trustworthy adult for help by calling 1800 870 772. This call is free from any phone including payphones, prepaid mobile phones and your home phone.
Information for parents, guardians, carers, adult members (including Rovers) and the wider community.
If anyone is in immediate danger, always call 000 first.
