We've been extremely busy in the last few months. Some of us have helped out with some pretty big events and we've all been having lots of fun. 

Meeting the children’s minister

One of the things we enjoyed was meeting Edward Timpson, the Minister for Children and Families. He came to SCARPA and a group of us showed him a video we made which showed our top five points a minister should know about young people who go missing. After we watched it we talked to him about the issues. He was dead laid back and interested in our futures and generally us as people.
