County Commissioner for North Yorkshire

Overview of the role

The County Commissioner is a key volunteer leadership role within Scouting with responsibility for providing outstanding management and support for the twelve Districts within the County. The primary focus for the County Commissioner is to ensure that Scouting is able to reach every young person in the County; open to all regardless of faith, colour or social background, because we believe Scouting has the ability to change lives. This is achieved by leading the team of twelve District Commissioners, and other County appointments as well as working with the Regional Services Team (employed staff) to provide enough places to meet the demand for Scouting, and by ensuring that every youth member has access to a high-quality balanced programme that is challenging, relevant and rewarding.
