Scouts NSW wants to make it easier for Leaders and families to participate in Scouting, and is serious about spending less time on administration and more time on fun activities. Operoo (formerly CareMonkey) does this by giving Scout Groups the opportunity to use the tool to replace current paper-based E1 permission forms.
Operoo is centred on an Electronic Health Form (EHF) which carers (e.g. parents) create and maintain securely – something which can only be done by the profile owner.
This EHF can be generated for a youth member (<18 years old) or adult member (anyone >18). If it is for a youth member, it is created and consented to by a parent/primary carer, for adults it is the individual who provides consent for sharing a profile or attending an activity.
