Listening to the next generation

It was great to welcome our new Member of the Youth Parliament, Gabrielle Shaw from Laurence Jackson School, to my office on Friday!

We had a good conversation about working together with local youth groups, young people's mental health and issues from knife crime to climate change.

We too often hear how young people don't care or aren't engaged. This bears no relation to my meetings with young people across our constituency and I really look forward to working with Gabrielle over the year ahead.
