Encouraging a greater diversity of candidates for directly elected roles is the vision behind a new scheme which will see local people follow Sue Mountstevens in her role as Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).
Ms Mountstevens offered local people the opportunity to shadow her, to give a better insight into the role as the area’s elected PCC.
The scheme was open to all but, the PCC was keen to see under-represented groups – women, BME, LGBT and disability – apply to ensure greater representation from across the communities of Avon and Somerset.
For further information please read the Shadowing Scheme Policy.
The scheme is currently closed for this year, but we hope to re-open next year for more applicants.
