Young People

Young people have borne the brunt of the pandemic and I am determined that their futures should be prioritized in the recovery period. I will:

  • Hold an annual jobs fair to link young people with local employers and improve their employment opportunities;
  • Campaign for more mental health support in secondary schools to build up children’s confidence and resilience as they return to school;
  • Champion the voices of girls who have contacted me about public sexual harassment and ensure their voices are reflected in the Government’s forthcoming strategy;
  • Lobbying central government for more funding for West Berkshire's youth services.
