The Scouts NSW Board of Directors approved the roll out of CareMonkey for all Scout Groups in NSW. This is a game changer for Scouting in NSW as it will introduce a fully online application for families that will support the local management of medical details. Groups will now be able to manage Scout activities and the permissions to attend through an online, electronic process. This will eliminate the need for paper E1 forms for these activities.

Medical and emergency contact details are the primary data, no more than you would have been asked to provide on a paper form. We also ask for a doctor’s contact details, as well as Action Plans for Asthma and Anaphylactic Allergies. The more information you provide, the better placed your Group will be to provide assistance in an emergency.

Scout Formations – Scout Groups, Rover Crews, and Fellowships are all welcome to register their interest in using CareMonkey by emailing caremonkey@nsw.scouts.com.au.

A member of the Scouts NSW CareMonkey Team will confirm eligibility based on a data check. To qualify, your formation must have a minimum of 80% of the data in Scoutlink correct.

To ensure your Formation is activated onto CareMonkey as soon as possible, please ask Parents to update their contact details by filling in the form here.
