Blaenau Gwent Children’s Grand Council

24th March 2023

This week my team met with the Blaenau Gwent Children’s Grand Council, which is made up of children from schools across the county, to run a workshop on community safety.

The children have previously done some work on the areas they feel safe and unsafe in their local areas, and we revisited these issues to see what has changed over the last year.

It was an insightful morning and this information will now be collated and fed back to neighbourhood policing teams, the local council, and other partners. Sessions like these are one of the ways I ensure that children and young people are able to have a say on the issues in their communities that matter most to them.
