14-25 Year Olds Sought to Join Staffordshire Youth Commission 2016

Tue 9 Aug 2016

Young people are currently being sought to join the Staffordshire Youth Commission on Police and Crime – an exciting pilot project being developed in conjunction with the Police and Crime Commissioner, Matthew Ellis.

The Staffordshire Youth Commission will be piloted over the coming year in order to allow young people across the communities of Staffordshire to inform decisions about policing and crime prevention in the region. 

The Staffordshire Youth Commission allows young people to support, challenge and inform the work of the Police & Crime Commissioner. The Youth Commission will explore urgent issues affecting young people in Staffordshire, such as: reducing offending and re-offending; improving the relationship between young people and the police; and anti-social behaviour. 

The Youth Commission is aimed at young people aged 14-25 years who want to make a difference to their community.  We’re looking for a diverse group of young people from different backgrounds and life experiences to take part, including those who have direct experience of the criminal justice system.

This is a brilliant opportunity for young people to gain new knowledge, skills and experiences. Members of the Youth Commission will play an important role in helping to run consultation events and gather the opinions of other young people about police and crime.
