Many of you will know Alison in her role as County Training Manager, I’m pleased to announce that she has agreed to take on the role of Deputy County Commissioner (Adult Support & Training).


For the time being Alison will also retain the County Training Manager role to allow for the recommendation of Wood Badges.


Her main focus will be to work in partnership with Carol as CC to ensure that our adult volunteers are supported, trained and have access to permits and other tools that help them do their roles better and more easily.


Along with Local Training Managers and County Co-ordinators the team will focus on supporting:

  • Adults with their training needs, Learning Optional, Validation Essential!
  • Adults across the County on inclusion & diversity issues
  • Districts & Groups with the Nights Away Permit scheme
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
