What are the issues the youth of today want to see addressed by politicians? A part of a nationwide ‘Make Your Mark’ survey, the students of TNHA spoke out recently.
The results of a student voice survey will be added to the votes of young people across the country and the final tally will help the government identify areas of concern.
The event generated much thoughtful discussion between the students and the youth workers from the Iceni Partnership in Swaffham, running the booth. The three top issues identified by the students were mental health, protecting LGBT+ people and the right to vote aged 16. Pleasingly the first two worries are being directly addressed by our work in the academy.
