- Face to face Scouting sessions for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers can be run outdoors only in one fixed location
- There is no limit to the number of adults or young people that can attend an outdoor session
- Outdoor sessions should be for one, individual Scouting section. Multiple sections or Groups mixing together should be avoided
- Social distancing of 2 metres must be adhered to for all those aged 11 and upwards
- Where social distancing cannot be adhered to face coverings should be worn by everyone aged 11 and upwards
- Outdoor sessions must be in one fixed location. Undertaking a walk / hike / expedition or similar is not permitted

We understand that adult volunteers may wish to get together to prepare for the restart of face to face Scouting. For activities with no youth members present you must follow government guidelines for adults.
District Risk Assessments
If you are meeting at District HQ (not until we are at the yellow level) or Cox Wood (not until we are at amber) please use these Risk Assessments which we have already done for you. Refer to them in your own Section Risk Assessments and upload both
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 previous restriction on number of sessions that could be attended per week has now been lifted, so Explorer Scouts CAN attend their Unit and help as a Young Leader in the same week.
