Scouts & Guides: Rights Challenge
Are you ready for the Rights Challenge?
Launched to mark the tenth anniversary of the Commissioner’s Office in Wales, the badge enables Scouts and Guides of all ages to learn more about children’s rights and about their Children’s Commissioner.
Keith Towler, the Commissioner, said: “The idea came about after an officer of mine, who volunteers with the Scouts, identified an opportunity for us to work with Scouts Wales to develop a badge all about the UNCRC and about the role of the Children’s Commissioner. It’s the first of its kind so we jumped at the chance. I’m really looking forward to joining thousands of Scouts from all over Wales this weekend to launch it.”
Jill Gloster, Scouts Wales’ Chief Commissioner, added:“The activities associated with the badge are both informative and fun and so I’m sure it’ll be a popular choice for many of our members.”
