Why the change?

At Scouts NSW, we aim to create a safe and secure environment where every young person understands they have a right to feel safe. Youth protection is our number one priority and is everyone’s responsibility. Recently, the NSW Police have moved to a National Police Check for all adults including volunteers.

A National Police Check strengthens our already thorough screening process for all adults involved in Scouting, and ensures alignment with the Scouts NSW Child Protection Procedure.
