Croydon’s Opportunity and Fairness Commission wants to hear about the issues that matter to young people in the borough. To make sure young voices are heard, the Young Opportunity and Fairness Commission is set to start in April.
The main Commission, chaired by the Bishop of Croydon Jonathan Clark, is looking at how Croydon can become a better, fairer place with more opportunities for everyone. In early 2016 it will publish a report containing recommendations that can be achieved and change the borough for the better.
We need young people who care about Croydon and want to make a difference to the lives of the young people in it, to get involved. If you would like to be part of the steering group for the YOFC, get in touch and come along to its first meeting on the evening of Monday 20th April in Central Croydon.
If you’re aged 11-24 and live in Croydon, you could be a Young Commissioner. The role will involve:
• Coming to YOFC meetings (usually every two weeks, on a Monday evening).
• Helping to organise activities and ways to get other young people interested and involved in the work of the YOFC.
• Meeting members of the main Commission and telling them about the issues for young people.
• Possibly going to meetings of the main Commission and talking about the work of the YOFC.
• Speaking at public events about the YOFC.
This is a fantastic opportunity to be involved in something that will help to make Croydon a better place for years to come.
If you want to be involved, please call us on 0800 612 2182 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
