With the introduction of the new data protection regulations in 2018, the rules relating to the use of photographs and videos have been changed and Girlguiding are updating their guidance and starting forms to include an updated version of the photo permission.
As a result of concerns raised by both parents and Leaders surrounding the use of mobile phones during Unit meetings and Guiding activities such as residential visits, we have produced some guidelines which we hope will help Leaders make decisions when faced with having to balance the benefits of girls having mobile phones to hand, with the need to safeguard our members.

Young people aged 16 - 18 no longer require recruitment checks even when attending residential events.

Recruitment checks must be carried out if a young person turns 18 prior to attending a residential event.
