At Bradley Wood we aim to ensure that those who visit us are kept safe and well whilst here. Our Camp Site is run by West Yorkshire Scouts, part of the Scout Association and we follow the Association’s clear code of behaviour regarding safeguarding called ‘Young People First’. All the adults who work and volunteer at Bradley Wood must undertake a Criminal Record Check called a DBS Check, before starting volunteering and must also complete the Scout Association Safeguarding Awareness Training.

All our instructors are fully qualified for the activities they instruct. We ensure that that the standards our instructors operate to, are fully in line with the standards required by your organisation; hence where necessary our instructors are qualified to National Governing Body standard.

Any other insurance provided by the Scout Association only covers members of the Scout Association. If you are a non-Scout Association organisation then you are not covered by us.
