Safeguarding Young People

It is the policy of The Scout Association, and East Grinstead District Scouts to safeguard the welfare of all members by protecting them from physical, sexual and emotional harm.

For this reason, on this website:

  • Young people will NOT be easily identified.
  • We will NEVER give out their email or other contact details.
  • We will NEVER use their full names.
  • We WILL avoid using names at all if possible.


Parents/Guardians are to be given the opportunity not to have their child’s picture displayed on the Internet or used for other publicity purposes. This is not a legal requirement as the copyright of an image belongs to the photographer and not the subject. Nevertheless, it is considered good practice and good manners to seek parental approval. In some circumstances, we may rely on a ‘opt-out’ basis, where photographs include several  individuals and seeking the permission from each parent/guardian is considered too time consuming.
