Scout Hut Risk Assessments

When using the Scout Hut it is important that our risk assessment and policies are carried out. You should always leave the Scout Hut as you found it – and be respectful of other users.

In all cases, the users must have the appropriate level of public liability insurance, and follow the government advice specific to their industry or business type. They must complete their own risk assessments of the property and activities they plan to undertake. A copy of this risk assessment should be made available upon request.

Data Protection and GDPR

Our commitment to protecting privacy and data forms a key policy for Scouting.
