Pupils celebrate inclusion at World Cup event

14th July 2023

This week my team attended Torfaen Sports Development girl’s inclusivity World Cup event at Cwmbran Stadium.

The event brought together over 80 young people from across Torfaen to celebrate inclusivity and the empowerment of girls ahead of this year’s Women’s Football World Cup. 

I was pleased that officers from Gwent Police’s women’s football team supported the event by helping to referee games and offer endless encouragement to all the teams.

My team was also joined by an officer from Gwent Police Safeguarding team, who engaged with parents and school staff to offer advice and guidance on safeguarding issues.

It was also a great opportunity to engage with pupils to find out how they feel about policing in Gwent by completing one of my office’s youth voice surveys.

The feedback from the surveys helps both my team and Gwent Police understand how young people feel about the police and influence our work in the future.
