Young People’s Voice

 

The PCC’s Youth Engagement Forum was established in December 2018 and meets on a regular basis.

 

Our aim with the Youth Forum is ensure that as many young people as possible are given the opportunity to shape the future of policing and crime prevention across Dyfed-Powys. To help take this forward, in October 2019, we commissioned Hafan Cymru to work alongside our current Youth Ambassadors to allow us to identify ways of growing the forum in future to maximise opportunities to engage with young people across the force area.

As part of the commissioned work, Hafan Cymru arranged a series of youth engagement activities across the region between October 2019 and March 2020, building relationships with youth partners, and conducted research work with young people on our behalf. Hywel Dda Health Board also teamed up with us on the commissioned work, as many of the issues that young people face these days span across both health and policing.

Some of the survey findings and key messages were discussed with partners at a Youth Conference that we held in March 2020, and subsequently, we have identified opportunities to work with Forum members and other organisations to respond to the findings during 2020-21.
