Supporting People Harmed by Crime:

Launch of the West Yorkshire Victims Strategy and PCC’s Annual Third Sector Conference.

Monday 11 November 2019, 1pm to 5pm & 5.30pm to 8.30pm

Central Leeds

You are invited to attend the launch the West Yorkshire Victims’ Strategy. The event will also be the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Annual Third Sector conference, recognising the pivotal role that voluntary, community, and faith organisations play in supporting victims, survivors and communities harmed by crime.

The event will take place on Monday 11 November at a venue in central Leeds – a short walk from the train station – with the first session starting at 1pm and ending at 5pm and the second session, starting at 5:30pm and ending at 8.30pm.

Keynote speakers will include:

  • Mark Burns-Williamson, West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner
  • Vera Baird, Victims Commissioner for England and Wales and formerly Northumbria PCC.
  • John Robins QPM, Chief Constable of West Yorkshire
  • The third sector and victims themselves will also speak at the event and contribute to the discussions.

You will be able to opt into a choice of group sessions to brief you on the wide range of statutory and voluntary sector services available to support victims and survivors and there will be an opportunity for organisations supporting victims and survivors to publicise their services in a “market place” style event.   The programme for the afternoon session will be mirrored by the evening session.  The ‘market place’ will remain into the evening and those who can attend both sessions will have a greater opportunity to network and benefit from the group information sessions. 

The PCC is especially concerned that victims, survivors, other service users and the many individuals who support them as volunteers have the opportunity to attend, and this is why the event will be repeated in the evening. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day and a light buffet will be available for those attending both sessions. 

To register your interest for one or both sessions either an attendee or an organisation wishing to include a stall in the market place please email – consultation@westyorkshire.pcc.pnn.gov.uk.  You can also call on 01924 294021 or 01924 294023 by Friday 25 October 2019.

The Good Childhood Report 2019

Read the latest report from the Children’s Society collating the views of young people aged 11-18 from across the UK.

Since 2009 children and young people have become increasingly unhappy. Based on the latest figures we estimate a quarter of a million children are unhappy with their lives, with factors like friends, school and appearance all playing a role.

We are calling on the Government to introduce national measurement of well-being for all children aged 11-18 to be undertaken through schools and colleges once a year. This would enable the experiences of young people to be recorded and issues acted upon for future generations.

The Good Childhood Report 2019 is the eighth in our annual series and alongside the latest trends in children’s well-being, also looks at family, financial circumstance, multiple disadvantage and what children and young people think about the future.

More About the Study

Whether your organisation or group is big or small, flourishing or struggling financially – or just carrying on more or less as normal – we need to hear from you.

Using the findings, Durham University will build a picture of how organisations and groups work, how they get their resources and how they are planning to work in future.

The research helps to inform national and local government, health organisations and charitable foundations so that they make good decisions on how to invest in the activity of the third sector.

The research also helps the third sector itself to show the extent and value of the work it does. 

The project has generously been supported by Community Foundation serving Tyne & Wear and Northumberland and Power to Change.

Headline findings will be published in December 2019 and the full results will be freely available from spring 2020. A report focusing specifically on Kirklees will also be available at this time.

Recent reports from the study so far can be found at:

If you have any questions about the research and/or the questionnaire, please contact Professor Tony Chapman, St Chad’s College, Durham University, 18 North Bailey, DURHAM DH1 3RH, or by email: tony.chapman@durham.ac.uk.
