CHESHIRE YOUTH COMMISSION

The Youth Commission enables young people to support, challenge and inform the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, David Keane and Cheshire Constabulary.

Since 2016, the project has continued to work together to recruit enthusiastic, skilled young ambassadors for Cheshire. These dedicated volunteers have given up their own time to get out and talk to other young people about the priorities that matter to them.

They have gathered views from more than 5,500 young people across the diverse communities of Cheshire through peer to peer engagement, engaged with more than 50 partners over two cycles of the ‘Big Conversation’ and undertaken innovative work such as acting as observers on key police operations over Halloween and Bonfire Night.

In addition, over the course of the past two years, working alongside the Constabulary the Police & Crime Commissioner, Youth Commission members have set up a Youth Advisory Group to provide advice and input to the Constabulary on key themes affecting young people such as stop and search and missing from home.
