Nigel was today invited to join the board of Kids Count.
Kids Count is a charity that helps young people to overcome disadvantages by listening, encouraging and promoting self-help. All their programmes are created and managed by young people. Kids Count also hold the annual Most Inspirational Young Person Award which was won last year by the late Stephen Sutton.
Speaking from Westminster, Nigel said:
"I am honoured to have been asked to join the board of Kids Count, a charity that is totally driven by the input of young volunteers. I very much look forward to working with such inspiring, motivated and energetic individuals through whose actions real changes are being made.
Young people get a disproportionate amount of bad publicity and yet, as Stephen Sutton has clearly demonstrated, there is no glass ceiling on commitment to a cause when a young person is determined to succeed.”
