About Space

Space 2017 has landed and will be orbiting between the 24 July and 1 September!
Space is all about giving young people the opportunity to build on their skills, improve their fitness and get involved in some fun, positive activities. What’s not to love?

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire Matthew Ellis relaunched Space in 2015, to provide fun activities for local youngsters aged 11-17 years during the school summer holiday period. It went down so well, it was developed last year and here we are again in 2017 with an improved programme of activities and a new website to engage with youngsters, parents, guardians, carers and our partners too.

Space is funded and co-ordinated by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner but is planned and delivered by a wide range of public and voluntary organisations, including Staffordshire Police.

Take a look at the video where the Police and Crime Commissioner is talking about Space. You may also be interested in seeing the evaluation report of the Space 2016 programme.

Do you remember?

Those of a certain age may remember Space from the 80s and 90s. It was originally launched and led by Staffordshire Police and soon became a key part in young people’s childhood.

Hopefully we will create many happy memories for the kids taking part this year! We’ve got lots of great activities planned this year so all that’s left to do now if search for your area. Enjoy!
