Jo Swinson visiting Milngavie Youth Cafe with Deputy First Minister Jim Wallace
Local Lib Dem parliamentary spokesperson Jo Swinson praised the Milngavie Youth Café as she spoke in the debate on “Young People” at the Liberal Democrat Conference in Dundee on Saturday (27th March).
The motion called for a positive approach to young people by local authorities and the Scottish Executive, recognising that supporting national youth organisations and providing local facilities for young people is the best way forward to ensure young people fulfill their potential.
In her speech summating the debate Jo said, “Milngavie Youth Café is a great example of a successful initiative to provide facilities for young people. Involving young people in the decisions about the café has contributed to its success. Projects like this across the length and breadth of Scotland can help to create a positive future for young Scots.”
Last April Deputy First Minister Jim Wallace was impressed when he visited Milngavie and met staff and young people at the youth café.
