Caroline and Rosie welcome YMCA success

YMCA_Stephanie_and_Josh.JPGCaroline Flint took time out of campaigning to join YMCA trainees and staff at their Doncaster HQ for an awards ceremony this week.

Said Caroline: "I want to congratulate all the trainees on their success. It was great to meet YMCA Training staff and volunteers. YMCA's approach is about giving a hand up and a second chance to many young people. These are values I share. Not everyone has an easy path in life and many people need help along the way. Today, I met trainees who are seizing this opportunity with both hands."

Said Rosie Winterton: "YMCA Training do fantastic work with young people. I am delighted that they have this important training centre in Doncaster. YMCA Training gives young people skills, self-confidence, and a positive outlook to find their way in the world of work. These awards today come at the end of important training, and I wish each of the trainees the best of luck in their next steps."

Welcoming the YMCA manifesto, "An Opportunity for Change", Rosie and Caroline said: "Many of the YMCA's manifesto proposals support with learning and skills; to remove barriers to work; and encouraging a wide-ranging careers advice service, make good sense. YMCA Training does very special work. If re-elected, we will gladly take up their message in Parliament."

YMCA is Britain's oldest charity and one of the largest working with young people.
