All adults with a full adult appointment are able to register and login to our national adult membership database, called Compass.
Using compass you are able to view and edit your contact and medical details and choose which national communications you would like to receive. You can also see your role status, training records, awards and event invitations.
As a manager in scouting you are also able to view and amend certain areas of the records of all the adults in your group.
The information provided on a new volunteers Adult Information Form is used to set-up their membership record and we use the contact details provided to keep in-touch with everyone. So it is important that these records are kept up to date.
Please urge all adults in your group to take responsibility for their own data and ensure that it is keep up to date. To access Compass you need to register: https://compass.scouts.org.uk/login/User/Register
Once registered you can login to Compass by either going to the member’s area of www.scouts.org.uk and clicking the Compass button at the top of the screen, or by going direct to https://compass.scouts.org.uk/login/User/Login
If your contact details change
Please regularly remind your team that it is their responsibility to keep their personal details up to date on the database. If their contact details change, they need to make the changes. If they are unable to make the changes themselves you can make them or they/you can pass the new details to your District Administrator or Appointments Secretary to make the changes for them! This will ensure that everyone receives the information they need and are kept up to date and informed of what’s going on. Things like important information in group emails or emails regarding training renewal due dates or DBS checks/permit due dates etc.
