Young People's Champion

Champion for Young People

 

The cabinet appointed me to become the Champion for Young People at its meeting on the 9th September 2010 and this is in addition to my role as Cabinet Member for Young People.

 

The role is to assist the Leader and appropriate Cabinet Members on efforts across Directorates to provide high quality employment opportunities and apprenticeships for young people, and to encourage external organisations to do likewise.

 

Resources

 

Each Champion is allocated each year a sum of £10,000 for use at their discretion to finance their activities, including the payment of a grant or loan to an outside body, as well as expenses, travel costs etc associated with, for example, organising and attending meetings, seminars and conferences and other similar events, and such other incidental costs necessary to enable them to fulfil their roles.

 

Any unspent balance up to a maximum of £2,500 can be carried over from one financial year to the next giving a maximum budget of £12,500.

 

The Deputy County Secretary and Solicitor has been authorised under the Council's Scheme of Delegation to Chief Officers to process financial approvals.

 

Accountability

 

Each Champion is required to prepare in June each year an annual report to the Cabinet on their activities in the preceding financial year.
