Police and Crime Commissioners engaging with young people

NCVYS is building on the success of the PCC Youth Charter by gathering some models of engaging with young people, for Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) to share, adapt and replicate.

They particularly want to provide PCCs with methods of engaging with a diverse group of young people, including those affected by the justice system. The principles in the Youth Charter provide a minimum expectation on PCCs (whether they have signed the charter or not).

If you are working with your PCC, your PCC is developing a good model of engagement, you are developing a model you would like support with or if your PCC needs encouragement to engage with young people, contact Mike Fitzsimmons at mike@ncvys.org.uk or 07818 598153.

As part of the Department for Education's Overarching Strategic Partnership NCVYS has published a briefing on elected PCCs. It includes details of those who signed up to NCVYS's Youth Charter for Police and Crime Commissioners and the Howard League for Penal Reform's U R Boss pledge.
