ONE hundred young people from Chester schools have been invited to discuss issues which affect them at a youth forum organised by Chester MP Christine Russell.

Connexions Cheshire and Warrington Limited will be facilitating the event, on Friday, January 7, at the Northgate Arena in Chester.

Youngsters can have their say on their experience of living in Chester and identify any barriers they face accessing provision.

A Government minister has been invited to participate in the event, along with Christine Russell MP.

Connexions-Cheshire and Warrington Limited was formed in 2000 and delivers a service for young people aged 13-19 and up to 25 with LDD (learning difficulties and disabilities).

More than 100 personal advisers and youth workers are employed in the West Cheshire area, in schools, colleges, centres, ‘hubs’ and youth clubs, to provide information, advice and guidance, along with additional support to vulnerable young people.

Following the 2009 event, Connexions-Cheshire and Warrington Limited will be seeking to implement solutions to the views and issues put forward, in order to continue to meet the needs of young people.
