Safer Together Newsletter - June 2023
It's been a fairly busy second quarter of 2023. and the Lincolnshire Strong Voices have certainly been busy! Roisin and I ran a group session to the 27th Lincoln Scouts in Thorpe on the Hill. Main Topics raised by the young people were Anti-Social Behaviour and the lack of activities for Young People in the area, Young People using Vapes, and Drinking and Drug Culture. The Core Group have met twice this quarter, they were very lucky to have a session with the We Are With You , Young Person Engagement Team. Rebecca and Yvonne were amazing at speaking and listening too the young people! The LSV got to learn lots of information as well as have their voices heard on what young people in Lincolnshire feel about drug and alcohol misuse.
I also attended the Lincolnshire Show, it was of course very sunny! I spent lots of the day making badges with young people and speaking to them about their feelings on community safety, and what makes their community feel safe, and unsafe.
What is Lincolnshire Strong Voices
The Strong Voices Project, led by the Oﬃce of the Police and Crime Commissioners Safer Together Team will develop further the work of the Youth Commission by engaging with 11-21 years olds who live in Lincolnshire; empowering them to speak in an environment where they feel comfortable to raise local issues openly.
Lincolnshire Strong Voices will be running hour long FREE sessions every two months within your community which will aim to:
- Give young people a voice raising policing and crime issues from their communities
- Challenge & inform the work of the PCC
- Challenge & inform the work of Lincolnshire Police
- Help to make your community a Happier, Healthier and Safer Place to Live!
We have already reached and engaged with 1000 young people across Lincolnshire … and our work is only just beginning. Get signed up now!
Please share and promote the Lincolnshire Strong Voices Programme far and wide! We want to engage with as many Young People in the County as possible!
Preventing Serious Violence in Lincolnshire 2023 Survey
Marc Jones, the Police & Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire and Councillor Patricia Bradwell, the Co-Chair of the Serious Violence Core Priority Group have commissioned a new survey that aims to investigate the views, experiences and ideas of resi-dents across the county, with regard to violence of all kinds and how it might best be prevented. It should only take around ten minutes to complete the survey but the results have the potential to help improve the safety and wellbeing of us all. Please rest assured that the results from the survey will be reported anonymously and there is no obligation to provide any personally identifying details.
