WHAT IS COMPASS?
Compass is a powerful set of online tools for you to manage your Scouting administrative activities in one place. It can share access to that information with relevant Scouting colleagues and offer a high level of data security. The system streamlines many tasks currently performed to manage Scouting so you spend less time on administration.
Tasks supported by the system include awarding and maintaining badges/awards, producing reports and distribution lists using member data including completing the national Scout census, assigning roles and managing young people and adults leaving, joining or transferring, managing training and events, issuing/renewing permits and vetting checks, creating, closing or merging Sections and Groups.
It is the only online system provided by The Scout Association and is free of charge to its users.

WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT EVERYONE USES THIS METHOD OF UPLOADING YOUTH DATA AS IT IS LIKELY TO BE FAR QUICKER AND EASIER THAN MANUALLY ENTERING ALL YOUR YOUTH DATA INDIVIDUALLY INTO COMPASS.
