Last week, we had a visit from Chi Onwurah, MP for Newcastle Central and a Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, to our Learning Hub at Newcastle City Learning Centre. It was nice to meet with her and for us, to be able to demonstrate the work our children and young people do.
Chi had the opportunity to speak with some of the children and young people, some of our peer tutors, and some of the parents supporting us. She asked a lot of questions of how the children, young people and peer tutors came to us, why they attend and what they get out of it.
She also met with our West End Young Digital Artists, a group of young people that gets involved with various activities in the digital, arts and media sphere. Chi, who is a keen supporter of encouraging women into digital careers, was glad to see girls being a large part of the group.
We thank her for her visit and wish her all the best in her political career!
