To all members of Hampshire Scouts and please feel free to distribute wider to parents, supporters, businesses, etc.

Do you know someone who;

  • could build and lead a team of key volunteers
  • is resourceful and energetic
  • believes in developing young people and volunteers in your area?


The role

The role of a District Commissioner is very rewarding and is an opportunity to develop yourself and others. The District Commissioner, or District Commissioner Team, will have the opportunity to meet young people and adults, whose lives have been changed as Scouts, and to inspire and help Scouts Groups grow and deliver even more exciting and adventurous activities to even more young people. This is a flexible role and this role is open to role share within a small team. The format of the team can be decided between its members with some guidance from Headquarters. These roles do not necessarily need to be filled by current adult volunteers.

Download the Volunteer Vacancy Pack for further information on the role.
