Young people given chance to 'take over' for a day in Worcestershire
6:00am Wednesday 11th September 2013 in Local
YOUNG people are being given the chance to work together with adults for a day.
Worcestershire County Council is again participating in the Takeover Day initiative, this year taking place on Friday, November 22.
The national event is being led by Dr Maggie Atkinson, the Children's Commissioner of England. The county council is urging companies and organisations to consider taking part and offering a placement.
Last year saw more than 100 young people getting involved in Worcestershire and it is hoped more will take part this year.
Conservative councillor Liz Eyre, cabinet member for children and families, said: "Lots of people from the county council and from companies all over the county got involved and worked with a young person alongside.
“We opened our doors and even had someone working alongside our leader, Adrian Hardman. We had so much positive feedback from adults and young people we urge more companies to take the plunge and get involved.
“You'll be surprised at the new perspective, ideas and energy they will bring to your day."
The event is co-ordinated by Worcestershire Youth Cabinet with support from Worcestershire County Council.
To get involved or for more information, organisations and young people should contact Kirsty Fraser on 01905 773780 or email email@example.com.
