My Scout Explained
My.Scout is our online system that allows parents to:
- See information about upcoming events and activities, to make sure that your child never misses out;
- Find out which badges your child has achieved, and which ones they are working towards.
- Update personal details
Parents receive an invite to My.Scout when their child joins. This email contains a secure link allowing you to access your child’s information. Only someone with that link can access your child’s information.
If you have not received your email you probably haven’t given us an up-to-date email address for you. Please Contact us telling us your email address so we can change it, and send you another invite.
Once you have clicked the link, you can take a look around My.Scout. We recommend that you create a My.Scout account for yourself (click on ‘Account’ in the top right of the My.Scoutscreen) so that you don’t need to keep clicking the email link to access My.Scout.
Why are we using My.Scout?
My.Scout means that parents are able to access more information about their child’s Scouting, and means that all of the information you need about activities or events is secure and accessible at any time. No more Scouts losing letters on the way home!
Because the system also sends out emails about activities and events to your registered email address, it means that we can cut down on the amount of paper letters and printing that we do, which will save hundreds of pounds every year that we will be able to spend on our young people instead.
