STAY WELL - STAY SAFE - STAY SCOUTING!
We are currently operating face to face GREEN Readiness Level Scouting across all Sections
We know that many of us have come through this pandemic knowing someone or being the someone who has been affected by the events of this year. Asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness, and if we can help in any way then please do get in touch with us, in confidence.
A great source of help with food provision and many other things, like helping to replace broken appliances, is the Dons Local Action group https://donslocalaction.orgI we can put you in touch with specific people if that helps.

The Readiness Level
The Scout Association is operating a colour coded system for defining what activities may be undertaken - this follows on from the National Youth Agency (NYA) framework. Each of the colours evolve with the latest definitions of what type of Scouting might be able to be delivered by what methods and means. The Readiness Levels are generally mirroring the Government’s own scales of measurement. They are defined in conjunction with the Government.
The Government currently recognises that activities like Scouting are essential for the well-being of Young People and therefore the Readiness Levels have their own definitions of what is acceptable – for example, at times when the Rule of Six was in operation for the population, approved Scout Groups could still meet in small groups of up to 15 Young People and up to 5 Adults with them.

The Current Readiness Level in England, and our local area - and what might be able to be provided - can be found here
Each of the devolved nations, Areas, Regions or Bailiwicks may have their own Readiness Level based on local circumstances. You may even find that at times there are specific Towns, Cities or Counties etc. that have their own Readiness Level based on the progression of outbreak and risk in that locale. It is incredibly important to know what the current Readiness Level is for areas covering Wimbledon, so we are regularly checking the above link and advise that all Parents/Guardians do the same.

Group Covid Policy Risk Assessment for Parents/Guardians
Updated April 2022
Amended from September 2021 Policy, Approved by Group Executive Committee.
The Coronavirus has been with us for some time now and is likely to still be with us for a while. Whilst some of the precautions and recommendations detailed below may seem excessive, arduous and annoying, if, by doing them, we save one life, it will have all been worth it. Scout Headquarters monitors the required arrangements, in conjunction with the National Youth Agency and the UK Government.
As of 27th January 2022, we are operating on GREEN Covid-19 Readiness level.
