06 July 2020Northamptonshire’s Police, Crime and Fire Commissioner is recruiting young people to be part of the Northamptonshire 2020/21 OPFCC Youth Commission.


The OPFCC Youth Commission has been set up by the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner to ensure that the views of young people are heard, and help change services for the better.

We are now looking to recruit around 20 young people from across Northamptonshire to form the 2020/21 Youth Commission. We are eager to encourage young people to apply whose voices might struggle sometimes to be heard. We are also keen to engage with young people who have already had experience of the criminal justice system. The age range for the Youth Commission is 14-19 years.

You can check out information about the commission at:

https://www.northantspfcc.org.uk/opfcc-youth-commission/ where you will find an information sheet that can be downloaded, and an online application form for young people to complete.

I do have paper copies of the application form for any young people without access to a computer – if you need any just let me know and I’ll get them over to you.

Applications open on July 1st and will remain open until midnight on 31st July.

The first Northamptonshire Youth Commission ran from May 2019 until March 2020. The young people involved held a ‘Big Conversation’ with over 1000 young people in Northamptonshire – the results of their work are now shaping new initiatives that will help keep young people safer.

08 May 2020Waste & Recycling centres to reopen

Household Waste Recycling Centres to Reopen
Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) will be open again from Monday 18 May 2020 for residents to dispose of essential household waste.  Only essential journeys should be made to the HWRCs, and for residents to only use them if waste or recycling cannot be stored safely at home without causing injury, harm or risk to health. In line with Public Health England guidance, residents who are vulnerable, or who are showing symptoms which may indicate COVID-19, should not visit household recycling centres.  Social distancing measures will be present to protect the public and staff, with clear signage on display which will include restricting the number of vehicles allowed on site at any one time, and a one way system for vehicles and pedestrians.  Please visit https://www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/councilservices/waste-and-recycling/Pages/household-waste-recycling-centres-coronavirus-updates.aspx before your journey to see what dates and times your local HWRC is open.
