Safety

Safety

All parents are concerned about the well-being of their children, which is why Scouts gives child safety the highest priority.


The Scout Association of Malta must be satisfied that prospective Leaders are suitable role models for young people and are not likely to expose them to any physical or emotional harm. Suitability is assessed through interviews, reference checks and background police checks. Approved adult Leaders receive comprehensive and ongoing training in dealing with children and the various aspects of Scouting.


Scouting caters for medical, physical and dietary requirements by obtaining all the necessary information to allow Leaders and other helpers to take appropriate action. At least one person trained in first aid attends all major events.
