Central Yorkshire Scouts - County President

I am delighted and very excited to announce that Jane Dowson has agreed to accept the role of County President for Central Yorkshire Scouts.

Jane is an untiring advocate of ensuring that brilliant support, opportunities and services exist for all young people and over the last few years has supported Central Yorkshire Scouts in many ways.

Jane’s professional experience as Deputy Executive Member for Children and Families, a founder of the Child Friendly Leeds initiative and Lord Mayor, coupled with her extensive knowledge of our County, places Jane in a unique position to support our development over the coming years.

Jane has accepted an initial term of two years and has agreed to support us in a number of ways including:

  1. Supporting the County to find opportunities for more young people from all backgrounds and communities.
  2. Supporting the Pears Growth Project in Central Yorkshire, being a member of and providing an external perspective to the Working Group.
  3. Promoting the work of the County in supporting young people and developing the public perception of Scouting
  4. Supporting the County in developing relationships with other youth organisations, businesses, public sector and third sector organisations who have the potential to work in partnership.
  5. Helping the County to effectively celebrate its success and achievements.

We are really grateful to Jane for accepting the role and I know you will join me in welcoming Jane to Scouting and wishing her every success.
