We are currently recruiting young people to join the Wiltshire & Swindon Youth Commission on Police and Crime – an exciting initiative in partnership with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.
The Youth Commission enables young people to support, challenge and influence decisions about policing and crime in Wiltshire & Swindon. The Youth Commission allows young people to get involved and have their say about policing and crime where they live.
The Youth Commission will explore urgent issues affecting young people in Wiltshire & Swindon, such as reducing offending and re-offending, improving the relationship with the police, and anti-social behavior.
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 policing, crime and reducing offending and re-offending.
All documents needed to apply for this opportunity are attached. We’ve tried to make this process simple and accessible for everyone. We would very much appreciate it if you could encourage any young person who you feel would benefit from this experience to apply, and support them to fill out the application if needed.
