Speaking Up at the Cabinet Office... and Number 10!

Neil Adams, who is a Speaking Up Youth Parliament MP and Promote the Vote Trainer, was recently lucky enough to spend a day at the Cabinet Office in London doing work experience shadowing Senior Press Officer Stephen Coomber.

By the end of a long day in London, Neil had helped to write a press release, gotten sign of for it from MP Liam Byrne, emailed the press release to a range of journalists and discussed it with them on the phone, and even managed to get a tour of Number 10 Downing Street, where he saw the Prime Minister hard at work!

Neil said "Everything about the day was fantastic - I enjoyed every single second of it. I would like to be a journalist one day" Click here to check out the press release that Neil and Stephen wrote on the day! More photos here on our Flickr page.
