Can you spare some free time to help young and vulnerable people?
As well as being chair of the Northwards board, Sue Abbott (pictured) is an 'Appropriate Adult'. Appropriate Adults are volunteers who give support and guidance to young people who have been arrested and have no parent or guardian to call on.
Tony Lloyd, Greater Manchester's Police and Crime Commissioner has called on people to support the initiative, too.

Thinking about where you might live when you're older might feel a bit too far away.
But as you – or anyone you know - gets less able to live independently, there are a lot of options that you could think about.
That’s why we’ve joined up with First Stop Advice – an independent service that helps people get the help or care they need. They have an online questionnaire that people can complete in order to get some fast advice about their options.
