An opportunity for young people from your Parish to become a member of Northamptonshire’s OPFCC Youth Commission

An opportunity for young people from your Parish to become a member of Northamptonshire’s OPFCC Youth Commission

The 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.

My role is to recruit up to 30 young people from across Northamptonshire to form the 2020 Youth Commission. In addition to those young people who might ordinarily apply, I am eager to encourage young people to apply whose voices might struggle sometimes to be heard. I am also keen to engage with young people who have already had experience of the criminal justice system. And of course I want to make sure we have young people involved from right across Northamptonshire. More »

You can check out information about the commission at where you will find an information sheet that can be downloaded, and an online application form for young people to complete.

It would be great if you could raise awareness of the opportunity either on your website/social media, or in your email newsletter.

I also have paper copies of the application form that you can give out if you would find that helpful – just let me know and I'll get them over to you.

Feel free to drop me an email with any questions or leave a message on my mobile phone and I will come back to you as soon as I can.
