From 28 September, ScoutsCymru will move to Yellow readiness level, which will change what Scouts can do face-to-face in Wales.
The changes reflect the Welsh Government guidelines to support youth work services, which Scouting comes under.
It is important to note that Areas and Districts currently under local restrictions cannot move to yellow at this time. You will receive communications from ScoutsCymru when your readiness level changes. To check which districts this applies to click here
In moving to Yellow readiness in Wales, we can confirm the following changes:
Rhian Moore, Chief Commissioner of Wales, said: “Over the last few months, there has been a massive shift in the world around us and our ‘new normal’ continues to evolve.
“Organisations and businesses across the world have been forced to adapt quickly and we have been proud of how our members in Wales have embraced change.
“As we move into a yellow readiness level where we’re able to get back together safely, our commitment to support you is unwavering and we’ll do everything we can to answer your questions, find out what you need and understand how we can help.
“We continue to work closely with Welsh Government, the Future Generations Commissioner and other third sector organisations to ensure we get back together safely, but also to see how Scouts can support our country and our young people rebuild stronger for our future.
“While there are still so many uncertainties with this pandemic, there has never been a more important time to equip our young people with skills for life.
“We are here to support them in developing the skills they need to deal with what life throws their way. Supporting them in developing the skills they need to rebuild our communities, level up our society and strengthen our communities and our country for a more sustainable future.
“We don’t only want our young people to have the skills to be successful in life, we also want them to be themselves, understand how they can help and support society they find themselves in and be willing to help people from all walks of life.
“Join us and help us lead the way in building a new tomorrow where care, respect, belief, integrity and cooperation is at the heart of our communities and a way of life for our future generations.”
