Young Persons Fair 2018 - One month to go!

There is now one month left to go before the Young Person’s Fair 2018. The Fair is to be held at Crawshaw Academy on Robin Lane in Pudsey on Friday 5 October 2018 from 12pm until 7pm.

This Fair is to help young constituents and their parents on all kinds of aspects of growing up, be it 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.

Stuart said: “Providing our young people with the best start to get on in life and have a rewarding career is an area very close to my heart.

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 including 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.

I would encourage everybody who feels they would benefit to attend and anybody who would like to know more about the Fair to get in touch. I am very much looking forward to seeing you all at Crawshaw Academy in October.”
