Having the opportunity to make a positive difference

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Meg Munn MP was invited to visit the charity Groundwork to meet young people taking part in the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme. As part of the visit the 26 young people were able to question her on various aspects of her job.

After the Q&A Meg set them some tasks such as making decisions for the country as politicians have to do. Splitting the group in two, the young people had to decide whether it was right for the government to introduce a ban on smoking in cars carrying children; with team 1 arguing for a ban and team 2 against.

Each team came up with a number of arguments, including some similar to those raised when the merits of a ban was discussed in Parliament earlier this year. Meg was particularly impressed with the young people who volunteered to stand up and present their teams arguments in front of the whole room.

The National Citizen Service is about looking at local communities and encouraging young people to consider how they could help to improve them. Young people are then asked to plan and deliver a social action project of their choosing.

Meg said:

“The National Citizen Service is a really worthwhile programme which gives young people an opportunity to make a positive difference to communities. It was so encouraging to see how aware and engaged the young people were on current issues and I hope they continue to be active members of society.”
