Be Aware!!

election19The Scout Movement is not connected with any political body and The Scout Association wishes to remind us all that the law says charities must be, and be seen to be, independent from all party politics. Leaders should be very careful, for example, if contacted by any election candidates asking for visits, photographs or support for their campaign. When representing Scouts or wearing your uniform in the lead up to the General Election on 12 December, please make sure that you aren’t seen supporting or criticising any specific political party

There’s useful guidance from The Charity Commission (particularly the charities, elections and referendums section), as well as the rules we have in our own Scouting POR Rule 14.1 & 14.2

Sound advice!
