Hampshire Link Badge

The purpose of this badge is to assist with the process of members transferring to the next section and designed to reinforce the importance of physically linking between sections. 

It is an optional activity and can be used as the first step in encouraging the young members to visit the next section and get to know the leaders.  The tasks can be used for the Chief Scout Awards or challenge awards and as part of the Moving On award when they eventually ‘move up’.

It can be done as part of a small group or as an individual.  It is anticipated that the linking visits and activities will take place in the term before transfer.

It is not a replacement to the Moving On Award.  This badge is just the first step in the process of ‘going up’.  The Moving On award is to be completed as intended.
