I previously paid one invoice to my child’s Scout Group only. Why am I now paying two invoices?

Each year, Scouts NSW members pay two main ‘types’ of fees:

  1. State Membership Fee set by Scouts NSW each year to cover the costs of essential state-wide services and support, and
  2. Local Group Fee set by individual Scout Groups to provide local Scouting.

In previous years, you would have received a single invoice from your child’s Scout Group which included both the cost of your child’s State Membership Fee and for their local Group Fees.

From 2021 onward, families will receive their invoice for the State Membership Fee directly from Scouts NSW. This aims to provide you with a simple way to manage and pay for this fee, and also provides a clear distinction from the fee you pay to your Scout Group.
