View Full Version : Website - Child Protection & Legal Issues

01-12-2005, 02:51 PM
Just started to set up a website for my local Group, and I was wondering about what child protection issues I need to consider, as well as any other legal issues I should know about.
Our Scout Leader is a solicitor, so hopefully I can get guidance from him, but can anybody give me useful items to consider?
Thanks in advance.

Check out things like POR on Scoutbase.

If you phone the information office at Gilwell they will be able to supply you with a good practice guide factsheet - I can't remember exactly what it is called but it can be downloaded.

Loads of thanks for the help.
I really want to get it right first time.
The site is now just up and running www.5thcwmnewydd.escouts.net (http://www.5thcwmnewydd.escouts.net)
Any help is really much appreciated.
As a previous Scout personally - actually I got my Chief Scout Award in 1975 - I really think Scouts are in a super position to do great things now and in the future.
There are lots of not nice things happening all around us - all this organisation does is make better people. Keep up the GREAT work.
