Lincolnshire Strong Voices
It is important that we are giving the young people in Lincolnshire a platform to talk and discuss issues and concerns where they live, and to be the facilitators to help implement real change in the community!
What is Lincolnshire Strong Voices?
Created by The Lincolnshire Office of Police and Crime Commissioner and facilitated by the Safer Together Team, Lincolnshire Strong Voices is a space for young people aged 11-21 to raise issues and concerns about where they live and influence real change.
Through Lincolnshire Strong Voices, we aim to give young people the platform to:
- raise policing and crime issues in their communities
- challenge and inform the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner
- challenge and inform the work of Lincolnshire Police
- help make their communities feel and be even safer
Our streams of work to engage with young people across the county has three delivery strands:
- Core Group of active participants
Every 2 months in each of the districts we have our core group of young people who meet and work on a range of workshop activities and build on the aims and milestones of the Young Voices work.
