The online world is an amazing place which gives us and young people so many opportunities to learn, connect, game and discover.

With these new opportunities come additional risks and Gloucestershire Scouts believe we have the responsibility to protect all young people from harm, whether in the real world or the online world.

To help you do this, we have curated some of the best resources that are available.

Online safety training

The Scout Association is supported by CEOP’s ThinkUKnow programme where we have volunteers trained to deliver engaging and impactful online safety workshops for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network, Parents and adult volunteers.

If you want to book a session for an accredited trainer to come to your section, meeting please use the Book a ThinkUKnow session button.

To find out more and use online resources go to the the ThinkUKnow website.

More resources

The Scout Association have produced a Stay safe leaflet for every section giving top tips and advice on how young people can stay safe online.

The NSPCC and O2 have partnered up to create the helpful Net Aware website to help volunteers and parents learn about social networks, games and apps that young people like to use.
