Anti-social behaviour discussed at Crime Summit
Hastings Youth Council was part of the panel to discuss anti-social behaviour at the crime summit held on 27 September at Sussex Coast College.
Huda Caglayan, Chair of Hastings Youth Council, and Katy Bourne, Police Crime Commissioner answered questions from the floor of a well-attended meeting of the public and local organisations including Housing Associations, Police, Public Health, Voluntary organisations, and the Youth Offending Service Members of Hastings Youth Council also sat in the audience and asked questions to other members of the panel.
Cllr Kim Forward, Deputy Leader of Hastings Borough Council and lead councillor for regeneration and culture said, "The Youth Council is actively speaking up on young people's issues and problems. Services and organisations need to listen to what the young people are saying and consider the causes of anti-social behaviour; never condoning it, but reviewing their services to reduce triggers for anti-social behaviour and respond rapidly when it occurs."
