Youth Commission Partners Newsletter 


It’s been a busy month for the Youth Commission, we've had a training day for our new members where they were able to learn and develop new or existing skills to help them out with their role as a Youth Commission member. This included public speaking, equality and diversity and learning about the priorities that they have chosen. 

Our second meeting was all about giving each priority team planning time to come up with website content ideas and workshop ideas so we can go out and deliver to groups. Both of these meetings were really proactive and each team came up with a range of different ideas.


We've been out and about...

We’ve attended a Future steps event at Fareham College where we ran a stall and spoke to the students about the Youth Commission and got their views on our priorities by getting Big Conversation postcards completed. We also ran a stall at the Festival of Conversations where the main focus for this event was LGBT.

We also had the opportunity to work with other organisations during a two-hour workshop around Domestic Violence, this was a good opportunity to do some networking with other organisations. We worked in partnership with North East Hampshire domestic abuse forum where we jointly delivered a session to students around Unhealthy Relationships at Frogmore Community College.


Visiting the CPS and talking about serious violence

We were privileged to visit the CPS office this month, the whole visit was really beneficial. We learnt a lot from them and gained a better understanding of the amount of work they do for each case and the challenges they face within their roles on a daily basis. This was a brilliant opportunity for us to hear and engage with people who work within the criminal justice system.  Read our blog post about it on the PCC website!

As well as this we attended Serious Violence Summits in Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Southampton. It was good to get to meet people and be in a room surrounded by people and organisations that want to help tackle Serious Violence and coming up with ways how we can tackle this issue. 

We were invited to attend a meeting with Unity and other partners around County Lines and to find out what things other organisations are doing around this topic in Andover. This was the perfect opportunity for us to do some networking with others.


Working with the Hampshire Youth Parliament

It was great to meet with Hampshire’s UK Youth Parliament members, during the meeting we discussed how we could work in partnership with each other to reach out and get more young people’s voices heard, we are excited about how this partnership will progress.

The Youth Commission are looking forward to what next month brings and all the different events we have planned.
