Definition of Harm
This term refers to any detrimental effect on a persons’ physical, emotional or
psychological wellbeing and integrity.
What does Safe from Harm means?
Safe from Harm is a set of actions designed to make sure that every person involved in Scouting is responsible and committed to protect children and young people inside or outside the Movement, so everyone can feel safe, at any time.
In the context of Scouting, keeping children and young people safe from
harm encompasses all areas of child and youth protection work and includes a full range of strategies, systems and procedures that aim to promote that the wellbeing, development and safety of children and young people is a priority in all Scouting-related activities.
Within the context of an NSO (National Scout Organisation), the implementation of the policy requires putting in place a systemic approach to prevent and react to situations that may affect the wellbeing, development and safety of children and young people.
Aim of the Project

– Create or update their National Safe from Harm Policy
– Design and develop Training Materials for their Adults in the area of Safe from Harm
– Create e-Learning Modules in the Area of Safe from Harm to increase penetration of the content in the organisation.
