World cafe findings and solutions

Alert message sent 01/07/2019 13:52:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Dear residents,

You may remember that back on the 18th May we held a world cafe on serious youth violence in the Kempston, Kingsbrook and Cauldwell areas. We are holding the community feedback and solutions planning meeting this Thursday 4th July between 18:00-20:00 hours at Kempston Challenger Academy, Hill Rise, Kempston, MK42 7EB in the main hall.

We shall be sharing the findings from the world cafe and the report that was produced from this. We will continue to think about solutions at this meeting and use the findings from the meeting to inform the next stage which will be community led solutions.

There will be £15,000 made available to the community to 'spend' using a technique called Participatory Budgeting (see here for more details -
This technique is completely community led and the community has the final say on how the money is spent by coming together to vote on an agreed 'decision day'.  That means there is no panel deciding who should get the money - it is you and your neighbours!  So long as the idea is legal and meets the criteria that the community planning group sets, it is the community who decides.    

So if you are concerned about serious youth violence and would like to hear about and be involved in finding solutions we would love for you to come along to the meeting.

Kind regards,

Your Community Policing Team
