Following its success earlier in the year, we are pleased to announce that Bedfordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Festus Akinbusoye, will be hosting his 2nd Annual Youth Conference.


The event will be run in conjunction with Bedfordshire’s Violence and Exploitation Reduction Unit (VERU) and the conference will aim to help young people to understand the impact their actions and choices can have on the rest of their life and give them the opportunity to be part of the solution in reducing crime in Bedfordshire.


The day will be made up of a variety of topical workshops, inspirational guest speakers and an interactive theatre production.


The conference will look to inspire, inform and empower students.


Please note that due to demand tickets will be limited but before the event, any spare spaces will be offered to schools who have already signed up.

  • Lunch will be provided
  • Free onsite parking
  • Fully accessible venue
