Applications requested for OPFCC County Youth Commission

Hi all,

The below communication has been received by the Parish Council;

Northamptonshire's Police, Crime and Fire Commissioner is recruiting young people to be part of the Northamptonshire 2020/21 OPFCC Youth Commission.

The OPFCC Youth Commission has been set up by the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner to ensure that the views of young people are heard, and help change services for the better.

We are now looking to recruit around 20 young people from across Northamptonshire to form the 2020/21 Youth Commission.We are eager to encourage young people to apply whose voices might struggle sometimes to be heard. We are also keen to engage with young people who have already had experience of the criminal justice system.

The age range for the Youth Commission is 14-19 years.You can check out information about the commission at:https://www.northantspfcc.org.uk/opfcc-youth-commission/ where you will find an information sheet that can be downloaded and an online application form for young people to complete.

Paper copies of the application form are also available if required.Applications open on July 1st and will remain open until midnight on 31st July.

The first Northamptonshire Youth Commission ran from May 2019 until March 2020. The young people involved held a 'Big Conversation' with over 1000 young people in Northamptonshire – the results of their work are now shaping new initiatives that will help keep young people safer.

Thanks for your support.
