I’m the parent of a Beaver with additional needs. I’m not sure they’re ready for Cubs. Is there flexibility around the age they move on?

In the right circumstances, yes. Everyone at Scouts should face a similar amount of challenge, and everyone’s individual needs are always taken in account when making decisions. More information on flexibility and reasonable adjustments can be found at Inclusion and Diversity | Scouts. Generally, leaders will keep to the suggested age ranges, unless young people need a little extra time due to additional needs or exceptional circumstances.
