Presentation by Chris Roberts, Director of Trading at Tate and Lyle The Youth Council received a presentation from Chris Roberts, Director of Trading at Tate and Lyle. Youth Councillors heard how Tate and Lyle involve residents in their work and how, as a Newham-based international enterprise, it makes a positive contribution to the local community. Tate and Lyle focus on developing skills and creating learning opportunities for young people. It was agreed that the Youth Council would consider linking up with Tate and Lyle in the future, to work on community projects where they shared common priorities. 5. Consultation on the Crime Disorder Reduction Partnership Matthew Hooper and Chief Inspector Gary Brown from the Newham Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership gave a presentation on the work of the partnership in relation to young people. The Youth Council then held a round table discussion with the Officers on the subject of crime prevention projects and powers of ‘stop and search’. The Youth Council agreed that projects which brought young people and police officers together, such as football matches and meetings with youth councils and youth forums were important to strengthen relations between the police and young people. The Youth Council also recognised the importance of stop and search but voiced concerns over the impact of intensive stop and search on young people’s trust and confidence in the police. Page 3 of 4 representation for a new generation The example was cited that some young people have been asked to comply with Stop and Search several times in one day, which is perceived as being intrusive and potentially demonising young people as a group. 6. Youth Council response to Scrutiny Commissions Having previously proposed topics for Scrutiny Commission Reviews the Youth Council focussed on four Scrutiny Commission Reviews on sports opportunities, energy supply, children with diabetes, and CCTV cameras in Newham. Youth Council members discussed key issues relating to each topic, and recorded their views and suggestions to put to the Scrutiny Committees. The Youth Council agreed to collate the views and recommendations into a report to be submitted to the Chairs of each Scrutiny Committee. The Young Mayor tasked the Young Mayor’s Office to prepare the draft report. 7.
