Overview of the role

The District Commissioner is a key volunteer leadership role within Scouting with responsibility for providing outstanding management and support for the groups within the District. The primary focus for the District Commissioner is to ensure that Scouting is able to reach every young person in the District; 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 Group Scout Leaders and other District 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.
