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 West Berkshire youth services.
