New Youth Commission Recruiting Now

Northamptonshire Police Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold is setting up a youth commission to involve young people in decisions about policing, the fire service and criminal justice in Northamptonshire.

Young people aged between 14 and 19 – or 24 if they have additional needs – are invited to join the Commission, where they can make sure their voices, and the voices of other young people, are heard by decision-makers.

The Youth Commission provides a platform for young people to get involved and express their views on a range of police, crime and fire issues affecting our communities. This is an important role, as it will help the Commissioner to understand the needs of local young people and to make better informed decisions.

The Commission will have 30 members who will be able to lead discussions and to develop and run campaigns that will inform and engage other young people on issues that are important to them.

People who take part will need to be confident, commit to one session a month and keen to get involved and represent their peers. In return, they will be able to develop their skills, gain experience and have the opportunity to help shape important decisions.

Recruitment is now open and runs until March 25. To apply, visit https://www.northantspcc.org.uk/northamptonshire-youth-commission/
