Young people are being encouraged to attend a support fair in Pudsey organised by MP Stuart Andrew.
The ‘Young People’s Fair’ aims to help young people and their parents on all kinds of aspects of growing up, from 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.
Pudsey, Horsforth and Aireborough MP Stuart Andrew is organising the fair at Crawshaw Academy on Robin Lane in Pudsey on Friday, 5 October 2018, from 12pm until 7pm.
Mr Andrew said:
“It is very important that we support youngsters through whatever is troubling them and I am delighted to confirm a number of fantastic local businesses are attending to give careers advice and to discuss the opportunities available. These include Abraham Moon & Sons, A.W. Hainsworth and Sons, the Phoenix Partnership, the International Citizen Service and Jordan’s Solicitors.
“We are also being joined by personnel from the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and the West Yorkshire Police Cadets who will all be delighted to talk to and of my young constituents and their parents about the range of careers on offer.”
Help and advice will also be available from Leeds Trinity University, the Samaritans and the Prince’s Trust for any concerns that youngsters or their parents may be having with their personal life or with their educational prospects.
