Residents across Scarborough and Ryedale get the chance to have their say to North Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner

Residents from across Scarborough and Ryedale will get the chance to have their say about crime and community safety when the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire Julia Mulligan spends two days in the area next week. (July 6 and 7)

Private appointments are available at all six surgeries Julia will be holding and they are an opportunity for local residents to meet her to discuss community safety, crime and policing and to give feedback on the service in their area.

“The surgeries are a good opportunity for local people to come along and tell me how the police are doing in your area and to bring up any issues you may have about safety in your community. Please do come along and have your say.”

Julia will also be visiting Scarborough’s award-winning ‘No Wrong Door’ children’s programme, where North Yorkshire County Council, the police and local health services come together to support young people who are or have been in the care of the local authority. Through the programme, young people get the personal support they need to make a success of their lives. Each young person has the help of a dedicated individual, who ensures they get the right services at the right time and in the right place to meet their needs.

The programme’s team includes a clinical psychologist, supportive police and a speech and communications therapist. It also offers residential beds, emergency accommodation, community foster family placements, and supported lodgings and outreach support.

“No Wrong Door was recently rated ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED for its work with some of the most vulnerable young people in our area,” said Julia.

“That’s one reason why I’m so keen to learn more about its work improving young people’s life chances, preventing homelessness or even ending up in the criminal justice system. Most importantly though, I would like to talk to the young people using the service and learn about their experiences. ”

To make an appointment at one of Julia’s surgeries, call the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner on 01423 569 562.
