Pudsey, Horsforth and Aireborough MP Stuart Andrew is currently organising a Young Person’s Fair in his constituency.
The fair is to be held at Crawshaw Academy on Robin Lane in Pudsey on Friday 5 October 2018 from 12pm until 7pm.
This fair is to help young constituents and their parents on all kinds of aspects of growing up, be it careers advice or everyday issues young people face including mental health support, money advice and help to combat social media bullying.
Local businesses who are recruiting will be attending so they can get out into the community and meet with young job seekers, which will allow attendees to hear exactly what employers are looking for and how they can improve their skill set. Mr Andrew said:
“Providing our young people with the best start to get on in life and have a rewarding career is an area very close to my heart.
“It is very important that we support youngsters through whatever is troubling them and I will be getting in touch with local businesses and a range of other organisations.”
Leeds Samaritans, LGBT and the Job Centre will also be attending and there will be a presentation from Leeds Trinity University on the university applications process. Mr Andrew added:
“I would encourage everybody who feels they would benefit from to attend and anybody who would like to know more about it to get in touch.”
