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 for the team to work towards over the coming couple of years.

The objectives set for 2019 were almost all completed and were updated towards the end of 2019 to the below, which will take us through to 2022. The objectives are designed to help us meet the requirements of our vision that we set out to achieve in 2017.

County Vision

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

County Objectives

Our objectives are broken down into the seven areas of responsibility. The main County objectives and the six key areas, each led by a Deputy or Assistant County Commissioner (the name of whom appears next to the area). These represent the teams that are responsible for each of the objectives.


  • Support volunteers within the County to enable sustainable growth and development to both existing and new provision
  • Promote the visibility of the County Team
  • Provide a range of international opportunities, ensuring that wherever possible (where we are in control of costs) that they are affordable and accessible to as many young people as possible
  • Ensure that the County Team continues to be suitable and meets the ongoing needs of our members
  • Be available to provide help and support to volunteers as required
  • Promise what we’ll deliver and deliver what we promise


  • Deliver modules 1 and 3 in every District once in a year
  • Implement trainer monitoring across all presentation subjects, 50% covered in 2020 and the reminder in 2021.
  • Put in place a compliance system and ensure compliance across all training requirements by 2021

  • Ensure we are following national guidance / rules in relation to permitted activity provision


  • Provide a County Programme Initiative every 2 years that gives all Sections something different to add to their Programme
  • Create partnerships with local businesses and activity providers to support Section’s programmes

  • Support the delivery of the new youth shaped award to all sections in Humberside


  • Encourage participation in more international events to ensure (where possible) as many young people get to take part as wish to do so
  • Support our International event in 2022 which will give all members in County an opportunity to take part in an international adventure
  • Encourage leaders returning from foreign trips to provide material for the County Website and FB page
