Responding to the crisis in Ukraine
15/04/2022 By Dawn Saunders

As Scouts we're committed to peace, international friendship, and respect for all. Our Chief Scout, Bear Grylls has written to the National Organization of the Scouts of Ukraine showing our solidarity, and extending the hand of friendship and support. We know this must be especially hard on the young people of Ukraine anxious about the future and concerned about the safety of their family and friends.

At times like these, we stand shoulder to shoulder with our friends in crisis, and remind ourselves we’re part of a worldwide family of Scouts. Now is the moment for us to live our promise to help other people, especially as we begin to see refugees and displaced people. We hope and pray for a de-escalation and a peaceful resolution.

We also know that this will be a worrying time for Scouts and other young people here in the UK, including those with family links to Ukraine. As the crisis escalates, so do people’s anxieties about the situation.

As a Scouts volunteer, here are some resources to help you approach the subject with different age groups. We hope they will help them understand more about conflict and help them come to terms with their thoughts and feelings to support their wellbeing.
