The RAC aims to equip every member of The Scout Association with the knowledge and skills to keep them safe on our roads and to develop as responsible road users. RAC partner the Cub Road safety Activity Badge and have produced activities and resources to support the badge as well as taking patrols out to Groups around the country and running Road Safety Awareness Champions workshops. The RAC is committed to improving road safety and reducing the number of children and young people injured or killed on our roads each year.

Patrol visits from RAC and Horace

The RAC had an amazing response from Scout groups requesting a visit from their patrols and mascot Horace with hundreds of requests in the first few weeks of the partnership. In 2016 the RAC team visited over 100 groups to help deliver road safety workshops, with Horace keen to join as many of these as possible. 

Visits have continued in 2017 with more patrols getting involved across the UK. Now the RAC is looking to focus its activity by attending a number of Scouts and Cubs regional and national Fundays and events.

The RAC formed its Road Safety Awareness Charity in 2014 to lead its charitable activities and to generate funds to promote road safety and educate young people to help them stay safe around roads in the UK.
