County Youth Commissioners

Rachel Stout and James Mulligan are currently our County Youth Commissioners with the support of Steph Poole as Deputy County Youth Commissioner.

Their role is to ensure that young people from 6–25 years are involved and engaged in decisions that shape their Scouting experience locally and to empower young people to share their ideas and have a meaningful voice in planning, implementing and reviewing their programme and opportunities.

The County Youth Commissioners work in partnership with key members of the County Team. One of their main roles is to support and develop District Youth Commissioners and Youth Shaped teams throughout the eleven Districts within the county.
