The Safety Active Support Unit (ASU) is available to provide advice and support to Groups and Districts in ensuring that Scouting takes place in a safe environment.

Berkshire Scouts offer a free PAT testing service to any Group in the County. This can be arranged by contacting:
County Administrator

The Safety ASU is particularly concerned with providing advice on Meeting places, Scout owned or managed buildings, and organising events. The Safety in Scouting Team is not directly concerned with adventurous activities for which the Activity Team provides advice and support.
