Nottinghamshire’s Youth Charter has been included in a national report of innovative and effective approaches to tackling serious violence.
Published by the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners in their latest ‘In Focus’ report, the Youth Charter was used as an example of best practice alongside a number of serious violence projects nationwide.
The Youth Charter was co-created in June by young people alongside the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Violence Reduction Partnership, which is part of the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire
It was produced to ensure a quality standard in youth provision across the county, helping to keep young people positively engaged. It also invites youth workers and organisations that work with young people to pledge their commitment to a set of standards designed by young people themselves.
The Youth Charter includes plans to help motivate young people to achieve, build better community relationships and empower young people to use their voice and have a positive influence on their communities.
Forty organisations have already signed up to say they would like to receive the Youth Charter implementation training, with a view to pledging, while eight young people have been trained to deliver the training to community organisations.
