The Strong Voices project is a great opportunity for young people in Lincolnshire to make a difference to the community.

The Safer Together Team invite young people within the community to take part in the ‘Lincolnshire Strong Voices Project’ being run across Lincolnshire by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner. 


The Police and Crime Commissioner has previously commissioned Leaders Unlocked to undertake the Youth Commission, an engagement activity that allowed young people to raise concerns and local issues. Resulting recommendations raised by young people were shared with the Police and Crime Commissioner, Lincolnshire Police and partnership agencies.


The Stronger Voices Project, led by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioners Safer Together Team will develop further the work of the Youth Commission by engaging with 11-21 years olds who live in Lincolnshire; empowering them to speak in an environment where they feel comfortable to raise local issues openly.


Lincolnshire Strong Voices will be running hour long FREE sessions every two months within your community which will aim to;

  • Give young people a voice raising policing and crime issues from their communities
  • Challenge & inform the work of the PCC
  • Challenge & inform the work of Lincolnshire Police
  • Help to make your community a Happier, Healthier and Safer Place to Live!



We are running core group sessions in the following districts;

  • North Kesteven 
  • South Kesteven 
  • Lincoln 
  • West Lindsey 
  • East Lindsey (Coast and Wolds)
  • Boston and South Holland  


We would like you to encourage young people within your parish to partake in these sessions.


We are also offering a number of Town and Parish Councils and Community Groups across the county the opportunity to hold their own Strong Voices sessions for young people from their own community. The Safer Together Team will then facilitate the session outlined below in the table.

The Strong Voices project is a great opportunity for young people in Lincolnshire to make a difference to the community around them by influencing real change. It is also a great addition to their CVs, University and College Applications, as well as being a fantastic overall project, letting young people be involved in actual change.
