Yellow Card Update
Don’t forget that as of January 1st, 2024 there’s a new yellow card which all adult must follow. 

There is also a new yellow card poster which needs to replace the old version, plus the new additional Childline poster. Both of these posters need to be displayed in your meeting place. 

All adults must have a copy of the yellow card, if you have not been given a copy please speak to your Group Lead Volunteer or contact the District Team.

First Response Learning Updates
First Response requirements are changing! As we move to a teams-based approach, anyone with a young person facing role will require First Response learning. This includes current Group Scout Leaders (Lead Volunteer), Section Leaders (Team Leader), Assistant Section Leaders (Team Member) and Section Assistants (Team Member). Why not get ahead of the game and book onto one of the many, upcoming First Response courses?
