#RaceRoundTheWorld

COVID-19 is the biggest crisis we’ve faced in a generation

Now, over 500 Scout groups – many of them based in communities that were already made vulnerable before the virus hit – are struggling to make ends meet.

If they close their doors, thousands of young people will miss out on all the life-changing skills and experiences being a Scout can bring, precisely when they need us most.

That’s why the Scout Association are calling on all Scouts – and the people who care about them – to join in a sponsored #RaceRoundTheWorld, to raise vital funds at this vital moment in our history.

How to take part in #RaceRoundTheWorld

From 29 October onwards, they are asking everyone – including young people and their families, volunteers, and former Scouts – to sign up and join one of four teams.

The four teams are racing each other to see who can be the first to travel the 43,000 miles to get round the world. Everyone who takes part will be following our route at least once, though we’re encouraging everyone to take on as many miles as they can manage!

Risk Assessments

Following recent guidance from the UK Scout Association, in response to COVID-19, our leaders are in the process of creating their Risk Assessments to allow each section to Return to Scouting.

Going forwards, there will be a requirement for all future Scouting activities to have a full, written, Risk Assessment available to all parents and young people. This is due to become mandatory as of January 2021

As a way of ensuring we meet this, the 12th Eastleigh Scout Group will be creating full written Risk Assessments for all activities as of now. These are available for all leaders, parents and young people to access on the new Risk Assessments page.

As new Risk Assessments are produced, we will add them to this page.

If you have any questions regarding and Risk Assessment, affecting your young person, please contact your Section Leader
