Photography Policy

Members of our media team, other members of the Scout Association and members of the public may be taking still and moving pictures.

Pictures used by West Mercia Scouts outside of the event/activity will only be used in accordance with Scout Association guidelines. Pictures taken by our media team may be used during and after the event/activity in West Mercia Scout County or the Scout Association publications, and in local newspapers, on websites or in other media channels. Local newspapers and TV stations may also attend events/activities to provide external media coverage and members of the press will be accompanied at all times by a member of the event or activity staff/leader team. We will seek your specific permission if we wish to use your/your child’s picture in any promotional or advertising material.

Anyone attending any West Mercia Scouts event or activity or giving permission for their child to attend an event or activity should note that attendance at the event or activity signifies their consent for pictures of themselves/their child to be used in line with the above policy.

If you have specific concerns in this regard, please contact the specific event/activity manager.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
