Reporting accidents

Unfortunately, at some time in the life of many leaders or commissioners, it is likely that they will encounter an accident involving someone in the movement. Often the adults concerned are unaware of the steps which should be taken after first aid, rescue or other emergency treatment has been performed.

It is not possible to give an absolute ruling on what should be reported to Scout Insurance Services and what need not be. If in doubt, telephone the scout information centre in the first instance on 0345 300 1818 and seek advice. However, the factsheet below should give a general guide.
