We are sharing this message from the Lincolnshire Youth commission:
“The Youth Commission enables young people to support, challenge and inform the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire, Marc Jones (APCC). This is an exciting peer-led project to enable young people to influence the strategy for policing and crime in their area.
What we are offering:
We are looking to engage participants aged 14-25 years who are currently residents of the Lincolnshire policing area. I’m contacting local organisations to offer an interactive workshop for students (either via ZOOM or IN PERSON) . These workshops will be co-designed and delivered by members of the Youth Commission, and supported by a member of our staff.
What the peer-led research aims to do:
Our aim of the workshops is to gather the views, perceptions and experience of young people and provide an opportunity to gather their top solutions for the following key priorities:
- Mental Health
- Diversity and Inclusion
- Young people and their Relationship with the Police
- Stopping Abuse
- Safer Communities
- Exploitation and Violence effecting children and young people
We want to create a ‘Big Conversation’ using the views, experiences and perceptions from young people in the Lincolnshire area. The aim is to collate the data and make recommendation and feedback to the Police and Crime Commissioner at the Youth Commission Conference in January 2022.
This opportunity allows young people to have a say in influencing the strategy for crime and policing in Lincolnshire, as well as providing a fun, informative and interactive workshop on the difficulties we face in this area. It will also aid in building your students teamwork, awareness and knowledge of the key issues.
Get in touch:
We are keen to gather the views of young people connected to your organisation. Please encourage the relevant person within your organisation to get in touch, or get in contact with me directly. We can then arrange a workshop at a time and date which suits you.
We are looking to start taking bookings from W/C 20th September on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
If you would like some more information on the project, please see the link below to our last years press release and report from the PCC’S Office.
