Graduates of ‘Parliamentors’ programme address challenges in their communities

22 June 2018


LEGAL advice for refugees, a faith garden, and donation boxes containing sanitary products are among the projects developed by students graduating from this year’s Parliamentors’ programme.

Since its launch in 2007, the scheme, run by the Faith & Belief Forum, has matched 450 university students of different faith backgrounds with MPs. The MPs coach up to five students from each university; they develop a project that addresses a challenge in their communities.

This year, Ben Bradley, the MP for Mansfield, worked with students from Nottingham Trent University to develop “Wonder Box”: boxes of sanitary products to distribute around Nottingham city for those who cannot afford them.
