With less than a year until the next general election, Sarah Simons spends a day in the House of Commons to learn about the great work that’s happening to encourage more young people to make a positive change in their own communities, and how this social action leads to engagement with the traditional political landscape.
Sarah discusses the power of the community with David Blunkett MP, looks at the promotion of politics in schools and colleges with Michael Sani of Bite the Ballot and learns about the National Citizen Service(NCS) from its CEO Michael Lynas, from Ralph Tonge, a local NCS group manager and from a graduate of the project Hannah Bradbury.
