Chief Commissioner of England
Elizabeth leads and supports Scouting in England to achieve our Skills for Life strategy. She is responsible for the newly developed England Leadership Team –with a focus on supporting the sixty County Commissioners who manage Scouting across the country.
As a keen youth member of the 4th Southgate, in Greater London North, Elizabeth experienced exciting opportunities, challenge and adventure, which led to lasting friendships and lifelong volunteering. She’s proud to be a Queen’s Scout - alongside her father, brother, husband and son. Liz has held section appointments with Beavers, Scouts and Explorers, but also enjoys organising all manner of events and delivering training – especially for Explorer Scout Young Leaders.
Following relocation to the South West, Liz became involved in supporting Scouts in a wider context and most recently served as Somerset’s County Commissioner.
Liz is particularly passionate about additional needs inclusion in Scouting. She works full-time as a Consultant Speech and Language Therapist, managing a team in a large special needs school, and providing consultancy services to organisations in the UK and abroad.
Liz is also involved in her village church as the Benefice Safeguarding Officer and a member of the Parochial Church Council.
