This means: Restricted size group sessions can take place outdoors and indoors.

Maximum group size:

  • Activities involving young people: 15 young people plus 5 adults.
  • Scout Network programmed activities: face to face programme activities for members of Scouts who are over 18 is in Red everywhere in England – this means that there can be no face to face section meetings for Network.
  • Adult activities with no young people present: volunteers over the age of 18 can meet in-line with restrictions in your tier for adults meeting together, to carry out essential volunteering tasks like campsite or building maintenance.
