It is the responsibility of all adults in Scouting to help develop a caring and supportive atmosphere, where bullying in any form is unacceptable.In Scouting we create positive and respectful environments where we value and celebrate our differences. This makes it difficult for bullying to occur. However, at some time we will all have experienced bullying, either as a target or an observer. That’s why it’s important that all adults and young people understand the role they play in addressing and preventing bullying.
Our guidance has been written to help you deal with bullying and take steps to reduce the chances of it happening in your group or section.
