The Youth Commission hold an annual conference to give the Police and Crime Commissioner their recommendations, based on the findings of their engagement with young people over the past year.
The Youth Commission’s recommendations conference was held on Saturday 19 November 2022.
Members shared the findings of their Big Conversation with young people on:
- Hate and hostility
- Substance misuse
- Safe on the streets
The recommendations report was launched with conference delegates, who then had the chance to focus on one of the three priorities and discuss how they can embed the work of the Youth Commission into their own organisations.
Pledges were made by those present, but please do email us if you would like to add your support.
The event was live streamed on Hampshire County Council’s YouTube channel and you can follow the slides here.
