Can the Unit Council ask a youth member to improve their submission (e.g. Adventurous Journey plan) if it isn’t quite ready to be approved?

Yes. The Unit Council can nominate to either ‘approve’ or ‘improve’ the plan.

If ‘improve’ is selected, then the plan is sent back to the Scout to update as required. This could involve modifying the risk assessment or providing additional information.

Once adjusted as required, the youth member can then re-submit the plan for Unit Council approval.
