Only 43% of 18 to 24-year-olds voted in the last election, the lowest of any age group, despite having the most to gain and the most to lose. This needs to change if you want to see decision makers make you a priority through policies that will positively impact on your lives and prospects.
The message is simple: register and, on Thursday 8 June, take to the polls and vote.
By signing up, finding out what local candidates can offer and making an informed choice on polling day, you can make sure your voice is heard by the next Government. http://ht.ly/urjU30bJju5

BE REAL CAMPAIGN | Our team attended Tetney School to hold a Body Confidence session with Year 6 pupils, where they spoke about the effects body shaming can have on young people and how the portrayal of the 'perfect body image' in the public eye can be unobtainable and can lead to undue anxiety at a young age http://ht.ly/oPdQ3086nQr #BeRealSchool

Support Worker Hannah was one of our team at Tetney Primary School today for a YMCA Be Real Campaign Body Confidence session with Year 6 pupils.
Some of the discussions we had with pupils centred on the knock-on effects of young people avoiding school because they are concerned about their looks, which meant they would not be learning so that they can gain qualifications and move into employment.
Pupils also said that they are already aware of the media portrayal of the 'perfect image', particularly in models and reality TV stars and that they prefer to look up to celebrities for their achievements, rather than their 'looks'. #BeRealSchool http://ow.ly/i/qUkgD
