What happens now?

Once we have entered the basic details you have given us, you will receive an email from Parent Portal with a unique link inviting you to complete the personal details that we need to make Scouting a (safe) adventure for your young person. Please click on the link and complete all of the fields that are relevant. You can use this link (or the link in any email you get from Parent Portal) to check and update your details.

Take a look at our online handbook for more information about our Scout Group. You’ll also find a page dedicated to those new to the Group which we think are the essential bits of information to have –

Top tips:

  • Add an emergency contact that is not the primary or secondary contact – this is so we can get hold of someone else (grandparent, trusted friend, etc.) in the event we cannot contact you.
  • In Parent Portal, un-tick the ‘receive emails from leaders’ box for the second contact email address. If there is an email address in this box and the tick box is ticked, the second contact will receive copies of all emails sent by the system, including event invitations and payment information emails. If you’re happy for the second contact to have copies of all of these, you can of course leave it ticked.


If you have any further queries or questions, please don’t hesitate to have a chat with your section leader or use the Chat with us function on every page of the website (if we’re not around to chat, you can leave a message and we’ll make sure the right person gets back to you).
