Scouting Safely: Leader in charge

Effective 11/06/2012: All meetings, events and activities must have a Leader in charge who has responsibility for co-ordinating all adults and young people.

Recent experience has shown that accidents can happen when there isn't a Leader clearly designated as being in charge overall, or when that person makes an assumption that other people are looking after safety issues. Responses to accidents are also impaired in such circumstances. see the full HQ Article
