Derek Dunsire

I was elected in November 2015 to serve as an Elected Member on the Scottish Board.

As an Elected Member my job is to provide support, input and oversight to the overall governance and strategic direction of Scouts Scotland. I've seen first-hand with my own son and daughter the benefits that a positive Scouting experience brings and I'm passionate about ensuring all our young people have the opportunity of this. Through my membership of the Board and the Programme & Regional Support Committee, I get the opportunity of using my grass roots experience to input to the projects and initiatives being developed to support Scouting across Scotland.

I started my own youth involvement journey in the Boys' Brigade, gaining the Queen's Award and like so many others, only became involved in Scouting when my son joined Beavers.

When I'm not Scouting, I am a Fraud Risk Manager for Sainsbury's Bank.
