My Scout is an online system we use to keep parents up to date on upcoming events. Parents are also able to view their Scouts badge progress and update the contact information we hold for you. We also use this system to collect event payments. A short while after joining the section you will be sent an email inviting you to join the system and set up a Direct Debit. The Direct Debit will be for any camps or events you sign your Scout up to attend. You will be notified in advance each time a new payment is added and you can cancel the Direct Debit at anytime giving you complete control of what payments are made and when. Using this system is very safe as Direct Debit’s are protected by the Direct Debit Guarantee and Go Cardless (the payment system) is regulated by the Financial Services Authority & sponsored by The Royal Bank of Scotland. For this to work it is essential we hold a correct email address for you as nearly all contact is made via email.
If you have any questions about this then please contact Deb Bainbridge.
We are currently in the process of setting up My Scout and will be rolling out parts of it once we have finished inputting all the data.
