Safeguarding Update

Yet another worrying internet ‘challenge’ has hit the news this week (see here for more details about the Momo Challenge).

This could be a good opportunity to talk to your sections about the difference between a good challenge and a bad challenge or dare and, instead of scaremongering discuss how to stay safe online.

If these conversations raise any Safeguarding concerns please report them to your Group Scout Leader or District Commissioner in the usual way.

If you would like ideas for resources covering internet safety to support your programme or would like a ready made session pack posting out please contact Trudy, Safeguarding Awareness Coordinator on
