Mr Blomfield said: “I first visited National Citizen Service participants in 2015 and saw the impact of their social action in the constituency I represent in Sheffield Central. This government flagship programme enables young people to not only take part in outdoor activities and meet new people but also to give something back to their communities, so I am delighted to once again be able to support NCS this summer and speak about politics with young people. It was fantastic that they showed such enthusiasm and knowledge of the subject.”
