This week we catch up with Lucy and Sheanna – two of the co-founders of “Yours In Scouting”. We discuss the progress since we last spoke 6 months ago and how the Scouts have responded to the campaign.

This is the third part of the interview with founders of Yours in Scouting, Sheanna Patelmaster and Lucy Pincott.

You can find the others her:

They debate on the effectiveness of mandatory reporting, mass safeguarding training for Scout leaders and provide advice for survivors who are thinking of disclosing their abuse.

The Yours in Scouting website has a dedicated ‘Get Support‘ page, which includes a number of organisations offering tailored support to both women and men. In addition, the team are currently organising a ‘Trauma Advice Session’ for victims who have been abused in the children’s organisations such as the Scouts, Brownies and Cubs.
