A stronger, fairer society
Posted: Mar 29, 2017
Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, Rob Wilson MP, was guest of honour at the Bracknell Conservative Association Annual General Meeting on Friday 24 March.
In his speech Rob Wilson spoke of working towards a stronger, fairer society, where we nurture a shared responsibility towards each other. “There is a lot to be gained”, he said, “by giving time, care and attention to others. Start when young and make this a lifetime commitment.”
A shared society means people are not left in isolated communities, no financial exclusion or entrenchment of extreme ideologies.
Rob Wilson MP’s two main goals as a Minister are:
To make social action and volunteering a core part of everyone’s life. “From ages 10-80 it should be engrained in us that we will want to give back to others and to society” he said.
To identify young people who are in danger of becoming NEET early, by the time they are 14, before their lives have no prospects. “By doing so we will save £billions and give young people he opportunity of a decent life.”
Rob Wilson MP was joined by Bracknell’s own Member of Parliament Dr Phillip Lee, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Ministry of Justice.
