Generation Z - Britain's future
Born and raised in Oldham, the most deprived town in Britain*, and having stood as a parliamentary candidate in neighbouring Rochdale, I understand the challenges facing young people today.
Youth services, education and employment are key components to ensure a successful transition from childhood to adulthood for every UK citizen.
Young people and students need to be empowered with choice and opportunity. What are we doing to help them, and who is listening?
Generation Z are the future of our country. I am keen to see them at the forefront of government plans to ensure a stronger Britain.
