Front cover - Youth Commission report
The North Yorkshire Youth Commission has published a report on their work to the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.

The Youth Commission allows young people to get involved and have their say about policing, fire and crime, where they live.

The North Yorkshire Youth Commission enables young people to support, challenge and inform the work of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire and York, North Yorkshire Police, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service and partner agencies about issues that are important to them.

This is a very important role, because it helps the Commissioner, the police, fire service and partners  to make better decisions to meet the needs of young people.

The Youth Commission’s latest report focuses on:

  • Mental Health and Emotional Well-being
  • Gender Violence & Safer Streets
  • Discrimination
  • Online Safety
  • Relationships with Police & Authorities
  • Drugs Gangs & County Lines

Talking about their work, Commissioner Zoë said:

“The North Yorkshire Youth Commission gives a vital insight into the views of young people relating to our emergency services, partner organisations and commissioned services.

“As Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, I am wholeheartedly committed to ensuring their voices and recommendations are listened to and have had the pleasure of meeting the members at their meetings, speaking at their Big Conversation conference and awarding the Good Citizen Award to the first group to achieve this positive contribution award.

“I thank them all for what they continue to achieve, and I want to tell them that, as Commissioner, they will always have my support.

“I look forward to continuing to listen and working with this inspirational group in the months and years ahead.”
