Earlier this week I had the opportunity to meet with Wiktoria Orlicka and Clare McVey, Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament for Motherwell & Wishaw.

We discussed a number of important issues including mental health and engagement of young people in politics. It is vital now more than ever to encourage young people to get involved and the Scottish Youth Parliament is an excellent vehicle for this.

It was great to hear about the work both Clare and Wiktoria are doing in their community and within the Scottish Youth Parliament and I look forward to working with them on any shared interests that arise.
