North Yorkshire Youth Commission Annual Report

The North Yorkshire Youth Commission was established in 2015 with funding from the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Julia Mulligan. The Youth Commission aims to enable young people aged 14-25 to inform decisions about policing and crime prevention in North Yorkshire, working in partnership with the PCC and North Yorkshire Police (NYP).

The Commission aims for this period were to:

  • Recruit and maintain an active, diverse membership of 25-30 young people from across North Yorkshire.
  • Work with Youth Commission members to identify the key priority topics to tackle during the project.
  • Provide Youth Commission members with the practical skills training they need for their role, and continually support their personal development throughout the process.
  • Plan and deliver a ‘Big Conversation’ to enable the Youth Commission to undertake high quality research to gather meaningful views from up to 4,000 young people across North Yorkshire.
  • Support the Youth Commission to turn these views into key findings and recommendations, to be disseminated at a final conference with the PCC, NYP and partner agencies, and then published in a final report.
  • Work collaboratively with NYP and the PCC to ensure that young people’s views are actively used to inform NYP decision-making through thematic subgroups linked to the NYYC priorities.

The North Yorkshire Youth Commission have released their annual report based on the findings of their 2017-18 Big Conversation with over 3,000 young people in North Yorkshire.  The report can be accessed from:
