For this badge, your leader might want to invite people from the police, ambulance service or fire brigade.

If you’re going out for a walk in the local area, use it as a chance to test yourself on the Green Cross Code. Can you remember what it says?


Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities.  For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
