Name: Lloyd Nurthen

Day Job: Voice of Customer Program Manager @ Woolies

Hobbies and Interests: Managing Large-Scale Events and Project Management

Favourite moment in Scouting: Being able to drive the Youth Strategy and Youth Safety Strategy in NSW.

What inspired you to work with youth members? That I get to give back what Scouts gave to me.

Why did you become a Youth Safe Advocate? Because I want to be able to ensure that all out youth members have the right to feel safe and know what to do if they feel unsafe.

Why is the Youth Safe Advocate scheme important for Scouts NSW? Because it shows our youth that there are people out there waiting to listen, but they just need to talk.

What is the key message you want everyone to remember about the Youth Safe Advocates scheme? It's all about being visible and being able to listen and then relay the information to the relevant people.
