We are proud to announce our second cohort of young leaders were successfully inducted to our Leadership programme through a weekend residential to Grosvenor Hall, Kingwood in Kent, to start our YLFSC course on the 21st April at Hackney College. Our weekend residential provided an excellent setting and a challenging and vibrant leadership programme  helping our young people to bond and form lasting friendships with their peers from different parts of London.

Our team of young people showed amazing leadership skills, huge confidence and we have discovered lots of bright and talented young people amongst the group. Its worth noting over 50% of our recruited young people come from the London Borough of Hackney and its great to see positive examples of young people helping each other to become leaders in their communities. We are proud to announce the weekend went without any problems or complaints and we can only commend the efforts of our young people, tutors and an amazing team of 6 of our graduates acting as youth volunteers over the weekend.

We wish to thank Hackneys “Asorock” for supplying some great food over the weekend, Kingswood Campus, our amazing tutors, Volunteers and Janet Hills (Chair of the Black Police Association) all of whom helped our young leaders to realise their potential by encouraging them to take bigger challenges over the weekend. Young people were keen to express their concerns about the state of fear in their communities but felt there needs to be a new and perhaps a more private mechanism to report crime. Janet kindly agreed to take this back into her discussions with senior Police officials and the Mayor.

We look forward to seeing our young leaders on the Hackney College Campus on Saturday 21st April 2018 at 9am.

 

Dear young leader or parent of young leader

Voyage is organising a “Police and Youth Question Time” event.

The event will take place at:

Hackney Community College Falkirk Street,
Hackney London N1 6HQ.
15th February 2018 at 3.30pm – 5pm

The event has been created to explore the views of young people against a backdrop of rising knife crime, young people feeling over policed and under protected and their concerns about impacts of targeted operations on young people.

Voyage wishes to host this event to explore the views of young people on current police practice/ operations and hopefully move this towards an ongoing yet highly structured dialogue at high levels within the Police service. It is hoped from the question time we develop the dialogue into thematic strands that will open up into more regularized and more structured engagement and dialogue with the Met Police.

We envisage this will lead onto young people engaged and consulted sustainably through the:

• shaping of policing and community safety practice, procedures and policies
• strengthening of community trust and confidence in the Met Police
• building effective and long term bridges between young people at the Police

The event has already secured the participation from a mix of Hackney Police officers, Operation Trident, the Met Black Police association, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services and specialist teams including Taser/ fire arms and spot hood officers.

The Youth Question Time will attract up to 75 young people that are part of Voyages current education programmes and will be opened up to our local partners. The event will be chaired by Duane Maddison (aka Amen Noir) to ensure there is a structure to the afternoon, everyone gets a chance to speak and take questions from the floor.

We are hoping to drill into some of the issues and concerns that are raised at the Question Time event and follow this up with a report, actions and next steps.
