Safe from Harm




Safe from Harm ensures that every person involved in Scouting, especially children and young people, feels safe anywhere and at all times. It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure the protection of young people and adults, so use this Service to find guidelines, procedures, educational tools, recommendations and best practices to turn Safe from Harm into a reality inside and outside the Movement.

Use this Service to learn how to build environments that foster healthy and self-fulfilling personal development, improve national policies on Safe from Harm and implement them at your National Scout Organization.

Service testimonial:

This is a milestone for our National Scout Organization! For the first time, we now have a Safe from Harm policy that protects all sections of our National Scout Organization. We are proud that we were able to complete this process and look forward to moving to the next level of policy implementation - Leonilde Lima on the development of Safe from Harm policies in Cabo Verde.
