A note from Matthew Ellis, Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire
I re-introduced the Space programme to bring together public, voluntary and private sector organisations to help nurture, support and guide Staffordshire youngsters.
The scheme attracted more then 18,000 attendees across the summer holidays in 2017 – an increase of 5669 from the previous 12 months.
Space is all about fun, learning and growing in confidence. Staffordshire, like many areas, experiences higher rates of ASB during summer holidays than at other times and I’m keen that efforts are made to tackle this.
Space 2018 will continue with its aim of increasing skills, improving heatlh and wellbeing, and creating opportunities for young people to take part in positive activities to make communities safer.
