The MP for Harrow East, Bob Blackman, visited the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme at Stanmore College last month. 

He joined over 70 young people for a morning of social action projects and a Q&A on life as an MP and his views on key political issues. 

The NCS brings together young people from diverse backgrounds to develop their skills, confidence and social integration.

Bob Blackman, the MP for Stanmore, said: “I was delighted to meet such an inspiring group of young people taking part in the NCS programme in Harrow.

“It was fascinating to hear about the social action projects that they have been working on with local community partners, which I am certain will have a hugely positive impact. 

“I look forward to hearing about the achievements of the young people during the rest of their time on NCS.” 

Stuart Mathers, senior programme manager at The Challenge, said: “This was a wonderful opportunity to bring together young people from Harrow and Bob Blackman MP to highlight just how much impact the NCS programme has in a short space of time. 

“We’ve challenged young people to take on new experiences and life skills, including outdoor adventures, cookery and public speaking. 

“They will leave the programme with a greatly enhanced understanding of those from different backgrounds, and the confidence to play an active role in their local community.”

There are still places available for 15-17 years to take part in this once in a lifetime opportunity.
