In 2019, members of UK Youth Parliament voted ‘Put an End to Knife Crime – too many young people’s lives are lost to knife crime, the government need to do more to help end the knife crime epidemic’ as their top issue for 2020. 

Therefore, in order to find out more about the issue of Knife Crime in Wrexham, the Member and Deputy Member of UK Youth Parliament for Wrexham, with support from the Senedd yr Ifanc, have created a short questionnaire to ask other young people their opinion. This questionnaire will take approx. 10 minutes to complete and has 18 questions.

The aim of the questionnaire is to give the Member and Deputy member of the UK Youth Parliament a clearer understanding of Knife Crime in Wrexham.

This questionnaire is completely anonymous; we would like you to answer the questions openly and honestly. You are able to pass any questions that you may not want to answer.

This questionnaire is aimed at young people who live, attend school or work in Wrexham and its surrounding communities.

Why are we doing this?

To consult children and young people about their lockdown experience and give them an opportunity to suggest ways in which services can support them whilst we begin to move out of lock down

What we found out

What we found out  - The consultation allowed us to discover the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on young people in Wrexham.  We discovered that the main concerns for young people were loneliness and not being able to meet up with friends.  The majority were concerned about missing school, both for the academic and social benefits.  In addition young people were missing older family members like grandparents, and were very worried about their safety.  We also discovered what young people would like to see when they are finally able to return to youth work settings.  Ironically but not surprisingly the Wrexham consultation mirrored the findings from the Childrens Commissioner Consultation with very similar worries and concerns being highlighted.

What difference has it made?

What difference has it made? The consultation has allowed us to explore the emotional and physical impact of the pandemic.  It has allowed us to tailor our services to suit the expressed needs of young people and in some circumstances, highlighted family issues that has been signposted to appropriate services.  All in all this piece of work has allowed us to support, encourage and motivate young people through these unprecedented times and plan services to help young people and the community road to normality.

View more details for consultation Development of Strategic Equality Plan 2020-2024 Development of Strategic Equality Plan 2020-2024 Wrexham County Borough Council 10 Dec 2019 31 Mar 2020
Why are we doing this?

Every four years Wrexham County Borough Council are required to publish an Equality Plan.  This Plan needs to include equalities objectives for each of the protected characteristics included in the Equality Act 2010.

Our Equality Plan needs to be clear about what progress or success against our objectives will look like.  We need to consider relevant equality information in order to develop our objectives,  we also need to outline the steps we will take to meet our objectives.

 

What we found out

The consultation told us that in the main the areas we were considering could be areas of inequality, however, some of these were things that the Council could not have much influence over, or work to address any inequality was already underway by ourselves as part of our council priorities, by our partners - for example, health partners or the work of the Wrexham Public Services Board.  We did not wish this plan to duplicate the work of others, but to add value and make a real difference to people's lives.

More information on the Council Plan can be found here: The Council Plan and on the Wrexham Public Services Board website here: Wrexham Public Service Board

We also found we needed to be more specific in our objectives – therefore this helped us to refine and really focus our objectives on the things that we as a local authority can really make a difference to.

A summary of findings from all the consultation can be found in Appendix B of our Strategic Equality Plan and information on how the equality objectives changed as a result of this can be found at Appendix C of our Strategic Equality Plan.

 

What difference has it made?

Actions were developed to outline how we will achieve the objectives of our Strategic Equality Plan 2020-24, and performance measures developed to show how we will know that what we are doing is working.  These are shown in the information about each objective in our Strategic Equality Plan 2020-24.
