County Vision and Objectives
Following the changes to the County Structure and team in 2017, we devised a vision for the County and set out objectives that team are working towards over the coming couple of years (up until Summer 2019). The objectives are designed to help us meet the requirements of our vision.
These objectives are currently being reviewed and updated to reflect our plan to 2022.
We will develop a County that people are proud to be a part of by:
- Supporting members to deliver a high quality programme
- Developing the personal skills of our volunteers
- Creating fun and adventure for all
- Listening to the needs of our members
- Encouraging involvement of youth members at all levels
Our objectives are broken down into the five areas of responsibility. The main County objectives and the four key areas, each led by a Deputy County Commissioner (the name of which appears next to the area). These represent the teams that are responsible for each of the objectives.
