Child & Youth Protection

    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 Ethics and Child & Youth Protection Policy (in line with the Vulnerable Children Act 2014).  If you have any questions, comments or concerns please send an email to scouthelp@scouts.org.nz and we will respond as soon as we can.

    We also have a social networking policy to help keep our members safe online, and this is also linked below.
