Citizenship Foundation to give evidence to the House of Commons Speaker's Conference
On Tuesday, 3 February the Citizenship Foundationís Chief Executive, Tony Breslin, and the Director of our Youth Act programme, Ade Sofola, will give evidence to the House of Commons Speakerís Conference.
The Speaker’s Conference was established by the House of Commons to look into the reasons why there are not more women, disabled people and people from ethnic minority communities in the House of Commons. It has to identify any particular difficulties people in these groups face in becoming Members of Parliament, recommend ways of supporting them and recommend ways of tackling those barriers to their success.
Tony and Ade’s evidence will be based on the Citizenship Foundation’s experience of working with young people, especially in our political literacy programmes such as the National Youth Parliament Competition and Youth Act.
The session is open to the public.
