What details can County and Districts see in my OSM Account?

Districts and County cannot see any young person’s data on your OSM account unless they are specifically added as a leader to that Section or Group Account. However, Districts and County will be provided with a statistical dashboard showing certain statistics, from the number of badges completed to number of events being run.


If you would like training on OSM features and use there are lots of tutorials in the programme online. These can be found by clicking on “Help” in the top right hand corner.

Accessing your Package

1)    The code works across all your Group’s Sections or all Units in a District. If you a leader enquiring about your own section please ensure you inform other leaders and your GSL/DESC of the code

2)    Please use the code for all the Sections or Units in your Group

3)    The code will auto-renew each year until further notice

If you have already paid for your OSM subscription, neither the District nor OSM offers a refund on the items you have already purchased. The code will apply to your next renewal. Please apply the code now so it can auto-renew when your current subscription expires.

Our County code is available upon request via the District Commissioner

Note: This code is only to be used by Groups and Units within West Mercia Scouts – if you aren’t and you use it your accounts will be deleted without notice.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
