Adult volunteers are vital to the Group and it is really important that we value and support all our volunteers. We have therefore arranged Personal Accident and Medical Expenses Insurance which covers any adult e.g. parent, carer or family member assisting at a Beaver, Cub or Group activity. This provides the same level of cover as that which is automatically in place for members of the Group Leader Team and further details are available via the following link:
In addition to the above the County Scout Council has put in place, for Scout Groups, insurance which covers children (under 18 years of age) who are not members of The Scout Association but who attend, or take part in, weekly meetings or other organised Scout activities because they are accompanying their parents who are Leaders, helpers, instructors or supporters. The need for this insurance has greatly increased in recent years, particularly where Leaders of the Beaver Scout or Cub Scout Sections have young children who cannot be left with anyone else at the time of the meeting.
Two types of cover have been purchased:
1. Public liability insurance for the non-member children and their parents or guardians;
2. Personal accident insurance for the non-member children attending Scout activities.
