LEAD Programme Aberavon


I had the pleasure and privilege of participating in a workshop with a group of 12-14 year olds, as part of a project called LEAD – leadership, enterprise, activism and development. 

Run by an amazing organisation called Reclaim that I am proud to have introduced to my constituency, it’s about giving young people from working class backgrounds a voice and an opportunity to lead change in their communities. We spent the morning developing these young people’s manifesto for change, and I came away feeling truly inspired by their sense of purpose and determination to make a difference. 

The girls have produced their manifesto for Port Talbot which you can read here
