Wanted: Young people with important opinions
Renfrewshire students are being urged to come along and have their say on local issues that are important to them later this month.

Renfrewshire Council is urging Reid Kerr College and University West of Scotland students to drop in to the UWS Brough Hall on Wednesday 20 February and voice their opinions during an interactive question and answer session.

Their views will help the council and its partners to shape the next Renfrewshire Community Plan.Renfrewshire_Council_ezg_1

Information stalls will also provide advice on community safety, student services, career and job opportunities including internships, volunteering, health, equality and human rights.

Renfrewshire Council Leader Mark Macmillan said: “Young people are our future and it’s so important that their views help to shape the next community plan for the area. The plan will set out the key areas that the council and our partners need to focus on to make Renfrewshire a better place to live, learn, work and do business. I would urge all young people who go to university or college here to some along and tell us what’s important to them.”

The drop-in session will be open from 12noon until 6pm. Refreshments will be provided.

There will be a free return bus service every half an hour between the main entrance of Reid Kerr College and Brough Hall from 12pm until 4.00pm.
