Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, has announced her intention to establish a Youth Commission in Sussex.
The aim is to create a system for consultation between young people and the PCC.
Recruitment is now open for a representative group of young people (aged 14-25 years old) from across the county who are interested in becoming a member of the Youth Commission.
The deadline for paper applications is Friday 20 December and phone interviews will then take place in January.
The Youth Commission will provide a platform for young people to support, inform and challenge me on the Police & Crime Plan. I want to ensure that young people's views are represented when key decisions are made and that they are involved in this process.
