BPSA takes safety and youth protection very seriously. Our Youth Protection Policy is available here: Code of Ethics and Youth Protection and it is required that registering adult volunteers/leaders learn these policies before working with youth. The guide is also part of our required Brownsea Training Course for Rovers. All adult leaders and Rovers (18+) undergo annual independent background checks. Further, our policy implements a strict “two-deep leadership” practice to ensure no child is ever alone with any one single adult (unless it is their own parent/guardian). Please read through the guide for a full overview of our policy and practices.
