Introducing CareMonkey!

The Mornington Peninsula Shire Youth Services (MPYS) takes the health and safety of children who use our service very seriously. As such we are adopting a new health and safety application named CareMonkey.

CareMonkey is an innovative parent/guardian controlled electronic medical form for clubs, schools and other groups with a duty of care to your child. It’s an electronic version of the paper-based forms you must fill in for registrations, excursions, camps, etc. It provides you the opportunity to update medical information promptly and accurately, while providing our service with instant access to the information provided by you in an emergency. For more information about CareMonkey, please visit their website.

You will be asked to provide consent to sign up to CareMonkey when you book your child’s holiday activities.
