Barnardos’ scheme gets visit from an MP

Have your say

A LOTHIANS MP has met young adults taking part in a charity scheme designed to make them more employable.

Graeme Morrice, who represents Livingston, spent time with Barnardo’s Works, which has teamed up with Space Solutions to offer work placements. The initiative was marked by early success when Mark Stoddart was offered long-term employment with the firm.

The MP also took time to speak with service manager Simon Warr and Derek Bateman, development manager with Space Solutions, about education, work opportunities and partnership working for the future.

Mr Morrice said: “It’s great to see that Space Solutions is working in partnership to support Barnardo’s in building better lives for young people. I was very impressed by the work that is being done to help young people off benefits.”
