Supporting National Youth Work Week


There was a great crowd of young people at the Cross Keys Youth Club in Stanley when I arrived on Friday as part of a visit to mark National Youth Work week.

Youth work is hugely important to give young people confidence and a way to explore their identity and to learn about respecting others. And youth work is also about having fun which everyone was certainly doing on Friday in Stanley.

The young people I met had loads of questions and were really interested in what I do as their MP. They also wanted to know all kinds of other things. From what car I drive to how I work with the police to reduce crime.

It was great to meet such an enthusiastic bunch of young people. I’m really looking forward to a return visit
