Hodge Hill helps inspire community service

GB launches community serviceIt was a huge privilige this morning to help the Prime Minister launch our first ever national community service plan, in East London. See the video here. The idea is simple. An ambition to create a Britain in which there is a clear expectation that all young people will undertake some service to their community, and where community service will become a normal part of growing up.

Part of the inspiration behind my involvement is the incredible work we’ve done with young people in Hodge Hill. They taught me that volunteering and community service opened a new world of possibilities for them, and gave them a new sense of the world around them – and, crucially how they could get on and up in life. Thank you for your inspiration.
