Supporting Scouting in East Southampton

District Youth Commissioner appointed!
29/07/2019 By Mark Langdown


I'm pleased to announce that Oliver Axton has been appointed as the District's first Youth Commissioner. 

A Youth Commissioners primary duty, is to champion, encourage and lead the work to ensure that Scouting in the District is shaped by young people in partnership with adults. This is achieved by working within the District team, by: supporting youth shaped Scouting in the Programme, developing young people, embedding young people in local decision making and establishing means for wider engagement. 

Oliver will be creating a small team of young people to support sections in creating youth forums (as per POR Rule 3.45 & 4.52) and where there are already forums to find out what works well. He will also be sitting on the District Executive Committee and on occasions he, or one his team, will come along to the District Section Leaders meetings. 

I hope very much you can support Oliver in his new role.  

Many thanks

Mark Langdown
District Commissioner
