In order to maintain any form of face to face scouting, every group has had to submit a Risk Assessment in line with the current Scouting Readiness Levels set by The Scout Association, which in turn takes advice from the National Youth Agency.

The 12th Chichester Scout Group have made adjustments to the Scout HQ and have adjusted their Risk Assessment for both Indoors and Outdoors meetings.

If you have any questions regarding the Risk Assessment or in general on returning to face to face scouting, please contact Tony Tunnell at

This is the current Scouting Readiness Level available on the Scout Website.

Readiness level: YELLOW

This means: All activities can resume for members who live in England. Residential activities and international travel may take place.

Maximum group size:

  • All non-residential activities (including young people or Scout Network members): No limit on group size, although all activities must be able to safely manage the risk of transmission of COVID and, if this is not possible, they must not take place. Face coverings are required indoors (unless exempt) for those aged 11+.
  • For adult only activities please follow the government guidance for social gathering in your jurisdiction.
