West Yorkshire Youth Commission’s Big Conversation

Young people in South Leeds are being asked for their views on the issues impacting their local community including violence and attitudes towards women.

Two short online surveys have been set up by the West Yorkshire Youth Commission, a peer-led organisation supported by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority. They are working in partnership with the Violence Reduction Unit to help tackle violence and exploitation issues most important to young people aged 14-25.

Amy Drake from the Commission said:

“We currently have created 2 quick surveys to gather young people’s opinions/solutions to these issues. We are keen to hear what tangible ideas/solutions young people 14-25 have.”

“The findings from this project will be fed back directly to the West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit, the Mayor and West Yorkshire Police.”
