Youth Commission

What is the Youth Commission?

The Youth Commission is a brilliant opportunity for a wide range of young people to gain new knowledge, skills and experiences, and have their say on crime and policing issues that matter most to them.

The Youth Commission enables young people to support, challenge and voice young people’s opinions from across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, to help shape decisions about policing and crime.

What are this year’s priorities?

Members of the current Youth Commission have identified the following areas they are passionate about tackling

  • Cyber Safety
  • Mental Health
  • Unhealthy Relationships
  • Hate Crime

Throughout the year Commission members will be holding its Big Conversation – talking to young people about the four priorities, finding out key concerns and ideas on how best to tackle them from the younger community’s point of view.

Which of these is your top concern and what do you think should be done to improve things?
