Our Members

photo of member Ben Ben Frankland
Role Exploitation team member, previously Unhealthy Relationships and Hate Crime A little about me:

I’m 18, from near Winchester and care a lot about activism and a fairer society for all, particularly young people, and so the YC is perfect as it’s a fun way to ensure that others are protected, happy and safe. I also like to travel, run, drive, play football and watch F1.

Favourite thing about YC:

The opportunities to build my confidence by delivering presentations to people young and old have helped me so much, and all the lovely people I work with too!

The Youth Commission’s main aim is to represent all young people throughout Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Therefore, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of everything that we do, as we want to reflect the diversity of the area that we serve and represent. We are an inclusive group, so we want every member, as well as everyone that we work with, to feel free to be themselves no matter their identity or background.
