After two and a half years as County Youth Commissioner Emma has decided the time is now right to stand down and allow someone else the opportunity to lead this important piece of work.

It has been an amazing journey as Emma introduced the concept of Youth Commissioners to East Lancashire, recruited deputies and worked with District Commissioners to inspire and support our team of District Youth Commissioners. I’m sure Emma will agree it hasn’t always been easy; she has had a fair few challenges along the way! Emma has however made great progress in defining Youth Shaped Scouting and changing the perception of how young people and adults can work together in partnership to deliver awesome Scouting across the County.

Emma has proved herself to be an invaluable member of the County Team and I’m sure you will join me in thanking her and wishing her well in her future Scouting.
