Keeping young people and children safe is a global priority for WOSM and its National Scout Organisations (NSOs). WOSM is committed to supporting the local implementation of effective Safe from Harm systems and has in place a range of resources to support NSOs.
The WOSM Safe from Harm approach covers all areas of child and youth protection and includes a full range of strategies, systems, and procedures that aim to promote well-being, development and the safety of young people and adults.
The policy was adopted at the World Scout Conference in 2017, but the safety of children and youth has been a priority for WOSM for many years.
It is fundamental that every one of us in Scouting takes part in efforts to ensure young people enjoy Scouting experiences that are challenging, useful, rewarding, attractive and safe.
The policy is available in all five WOSM working languages: English, French, Spanish, Arabic, and Russian. The Chinese version is prepared by Scout Association of Hong Kong.
This Safe from Harm course was primarily designed for adult leaders of the Association. It aims to help them understand how to recognise, prevent and act towards inappropriate behaviour and give some guidance on the expected behaviour of leaders, to ensure we all work in a safe environment.
