Important update regarding Direct Billing of the Scouts NSW State Membership Fee (as emailed out to families today, Fri 8th July 2021) Dear Scouts family, Earlier this year, we wrote to you about an exciting project Scouts NSW is launching this year on our path to Sustainable Scouting – the Direct Billing of your child/s State Membership Fee each year. Unfortunately, this project had to be delayed in March, but we are pleased to let you know that it is now about to launch. As you are aware, the Direct Billing of the Scouts NSW State Membership Fee is a critical initiative for our organisation and is one of the actions we are taking to ensure we can keep operating Scouting sustainably during the year and long into the future. What is our State Membership Fee? As a not-for-profit organisation, every dollar of the Scouts NSW (State) Membership Fee is reinvested into the organisation to deliver Scouting to many thousands of youth members. We are committed to continuing to offer this unmatched opportunity to young people and families in NSW. Your State Membership Fee covers the cost of essential services and operations to enable us to develop the Youth Program and provide facilities and resources to groups. It also covers the cost of public liability, workers compensation and personal accident insurance for your child or young adult, their Leaders and other members participating in approved Scouting activities. You can read more about the Fee here. The State Membership fee is separate to any local charges your group may have to run the local program. How will I now be billed? In previous years, you would have received an invoice from your Scout Group which included the cost of the State Membership Fee, in addition to your local Group fees. From July 2021, Scouts NSW is changing the way you will be billed only for the State Membership Fee. You will be directly billed by Scouts NSW and will need to pay the State Membership Fee online via our secure payment portal, Scout Pay. What does this mean for me? From 15 July there will be a phased introduction of the system with two invoices this year.Phase I ActionDirect billing of Quarter 2 2021-22 invoice – one payment required. When15 July 2021Phase II Direct billing of Quarters 3 and 4 2021-22 invoice – payment in full (including use of Active Kids Voucher where applicable) or two payment dates – October and January. 1 October 2021Phase III Direct billing of 2022-23 State Membership Fee invoice to Scouts NSW members – range of payment options. 1 April 2022If you have multiple children involved in Scouts, you will receive a separate email for each child. This email will include a link to our secure payment portal, Scout Pay, where you will make your payment. Please note – if you have already paid the 2021 full annual amount ($240 per child) earlier in the year to your Group, you need to forward the invoice email you will get on 15th July to your Group Treasurer. They will then pay for you via the link for 2021. Regardless of the payment option you select, you will be responsible for paying the full amount of the annual State Membership Fee. This year, if you choose to use your child’s second annual Active Kids voucher(s), you will be able to redeem these up to 15 September on the Scouts NSW website here. The credit will be applied to your Quarter 3/4 invoice. From 1 October, this process will move to redemption via Scout Pay when paying your child’s State Membership Fee. You will not be able to redeem Active Kids Vouchers between 15 September - 1 October whilst the systems are switched over. Why is the process being changed? Direct billing of the annual State Membership Fee is a simple and streamlined way to manage and pay your child’s State Membership Fee. It also helps you understand the difference between the State Membership Fee and your local Group Fees. Any questions? There is a detailed FAQ page on the Scouts NSW website for parents here. We will update the FAQs with additional information as required. On that web page there is also a form there where you can submit any questions. Or you can get in touch by email or phone: memberservices@nsw.scouts.com.au or 02 9735 9000. Thank you We would like to thank our members, in particular our Group Leaders and Group Treasurers, who will be supporting their Groups and members in the launch of Direct Billing. Yours in Scouting, Phil CrutchleyDeputy Chief Commissioner (Operations)Scouts NSWMatthew PhillipsTreasurer and Project SponsorScouts NSW ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Everyone,Yesterday afternoon, the NSW Government extended the stay-at-home orders to now cover the Greater Sydney Area, including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, & Wollongong. These orders will be in place until 11:59pm on the 9th July 2021.The impact of these updated restrictions is that Face-to-Face Scouting must pause for this period, we will be doing some online meeting for the first week of term 3.We expect that Scouts NSW will provide further information soon.Most importantly we understand that the next two weeks will have an impact on some of our members. Please keep safe, support each other as much as possible and we hope to see everyone back to Scouting for a great term 3 shortly.As always, please reach out with any questions, concerns, etc. and thank you for all the work that you do.Posted by Rock ...

Note: any comment in square brackets [] have been added for clarity as it relates to our group.Hi All,Further to yesterday's e-mail [to Adult Leaders], the NSW Government has introduced further restrictions to help ease the spread of COVID-19 in our community.Of particular relevance to our Scout Groups, from 4pm today [Wed 23rd June] until the 1st of July:The number of people you may have in your hall at any one time has been halved. (If you have a current restriction of 50 people, this is now 25 people or 1 person per 4sqm of floor space.)[This means the Glenbrook Street hall is 51ppl, Lethbridge Street is 26 ppl]Outdoor activities must also abide by the 1 person per 4sqm of space available.Masks must now be worn by all members over the age of 12 at all activities (indoor and organised outdoor events). Members under the age of 12 are not required to wear masks but are encouraged to do so where practical. Anyone under the age of 2 is not required to wear a mask.Activities using public transport should be aware of increased limits on busses and trains.If you are planning an end of term camp, sleep over or similar, then the number of people who can be in a tent must also be halved to have no more than 1 person per 4sqm of floor space. ...
