Scouting’s response to terrorist incidents
No one can fail to be shocked by recent acts of terror.
They are reminders, once again, how terrorism attempts to disrupt and challenge the values by which we live our lives. As Scouts we resist such attempts and stand firm in the face of such senseless violence. All of our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those affected.
It is part of our duty as leaders to help young people make sense of such incidents. Together, we can reinforce the peaceful aims of Scouting and its power to bring people together.
You may wish to support young people during your normal section meetings. To help, we have pulled together some links to existing resources you may find useful.
- Programmes Online (Search for 'Peace'. There are 15 activities)
- In the Face of Terrorism
- Peace Pack
- Scouting and Peace
As Scouts, we believe we can help create a better world. We can achieve this by demonstrating Scouting’s values of care, respect, belief, integrity and cooperation.
Thank you for supporting our young people during this challenging time.
UK Chief Commissioner
