Getting Everybody Back Together Framework

In line with government-approved Youth Sector Guidance, we expect to see a phased approach to returning to face-to-face Scout meetings and activities. This is broken down by four levels:

  • Red, for when the rate of infection remains consistent or growing
  • Amber, for when the rate of infection is reducing consistently
  • Yellow, for when there are very few cases in the population and a full track and trace system is operational
  • Green, for when there are no new cases or there is a vaccine readily available.

When levels change (as confirmed by the NYA and equivalents), Scout Groups will need to revisit and, if necessary, update their written risk assessments and action plans. They will also need to gain permission from their District to enter into the next phase. However, if lock down measures increase and the readiness level escalates (e.g. Amber to Red), Groups are expected to revert back to previous practice immediately and notify line-managers, rather than ask for approval.
