As I have said before, the role of the Children’s and Young People Portfolio Holder is not just sitting in County Hall, but getting out and about to the people who deliver the various services. Today, I had the joy of visiting Livewire in Saltash. I could expand on what they do on this blog, but I really want people to visit their own webpage because it is that good of a project.
I could have spent all day with Andy and Julie Rance who are the youth workers on this project. They are both inspiring people who have a passion for music, and young people. The Livewire project has over 1200 members and they get 100′s of young people coming through their doors each week. It is not only Saltash young people, but from places like Liskeard and Callington to name but a few who benefit from this facility. I saw first hand this facility making a difference to young people’s lives. Well done to all involved.
