Information for Leaders
To give positive guidance, the 'Young People First' code of practice (also known as the yellow card) sets out a code of behaviour for all adults in Scouting.
Every adult should have a copy of the 'Young People First' code of practice. It is designed so you can keep it with you at all times during Scouting activities.
- You have your own copy.
- All other adults involved in working with young people have a copy.
- You have a copy displayed in your HQ or meeting place (large copies are available from Scout Shops).
- Parents/Carers are made aware of the yellow card and our child protection policy.
