Draft covid risk assessment & other resources


With apologies for the delay, please find attached a draft risk assessment conducted for Boxmoor HQ which you may find useful when considering arrangements for your own meeting places.

I have also attached two other documents:

  • Slides from the July leader’s meeting, covering the starting points for conversations within leadership teams prior to returning to face-to-face Scouting.
  • Notes from the GSLs meeting with a more granular list of potential risks/considerations.

Useful guidance notes from HQ

There are guides on specific topics (such as consulting with parents, getting everyone to/from the meeting place safely, first aid etc) at:

Our local team of volunteer risk-assessment reviewers are meeting (via Zoom) on Monday evening. If you have draft risk assessments you’d like us to review (or just questions for us), please send them to me over the weekend.
