Kids Count at Party Conferences
Each year, the charity Kids Count send their youth board to the three main political party conferences to bring the ‘voice of the street’ to the people who can effect change. This year, they teamed up with Media Trust to make reports for UK360 on the hard hitting issues that affect young people. The theme this year was Youth Crime.
The first film joins Aleksandra Terzova as she asks people at the Liberal Democrat conference in Brighton whether a negative perception of young people is putting their safety at risk?
Sam Lawrence quizzes visitors to Labour’s party conference on whether the criminal justice system is the best way of dealing with youth crime.
Kajal Chhapia reports from the Conservative party conference, where she asks delegates for their opinions on community and grassroot solutions to the problem of youth crime.
