Paddle Sports Update
Following a lengthy review, consultation and pre-launch check with the Movement the following updates to the permit scheme for paddlesports (canoeing and kayaking) have been made. These updates are primarily to integrate the UKCC qualifications adopted by the BCU. The permit scheme has not fundamentally changed, however it has become environment specific. This should add clarity for those who are applying for and assessing permits whilst still ensuring these activities remain safe for our members.
The updates to paddlesports are for implementation immediately as they donít place any restrictions on activities that were happening within the existing rules.
This will be also communicated via Scouting Plus, on our website and to those who responded during the consultations.
Details of what has changed and the reasons behind it can be found at www.scouts.org.uk/activitiesupdates.
