Help & Advice
If you are stuck with any part of coming back together safely, please speak to your Group Scout Leader, District Explorer Scout Commissioner, or the District Commissioner.
Please make sure that parents and carers aware that support is available for those who are struggling to pay their subs. Give them chance to confidentially discuss the matter with their child’s Leader.
Group Executives should help where they can – especially those who’ve received rates grants – and offer flexible ways of payment or waive certain fees altogether where there is a genuine need.
If Groups are struggling District can offer some support if other sources of funding (see UK and Wales support) are unavailable.
The advice for Leaders is different from those that are Young Leaders and Explorers.
While over 18 are allowed to attend more than one section 24 hours apart, Welsh Government advice for those 11-18 suggest that they should reduce their social contacts by 40-60%.
ScoutsCymru feel that this, along with other activities that they may attend therefore limits them to attending either a Section meeting as an Explorer or as a Young Leader.
There is nothing however stopping the young person attending the opposite setting the following week, if that makes sense.
Week 1 – Explorer Scout Unit
Week 2 – Beaver Section as Young Leader
Week 3 – Explorer Scout Unit
