Project Description

DANIEL LAWES

Age 16, Manchester

My social action allows me to engage other young people in politics as well as building my understanding of issues important to them. I am the founder and editor of YouthPolitics UK, which means I oversee a team of young people to raise awareness of political issues across Greater Manchester, and galvanise youth social action.

I have also raised £2000 for Parkinson’s UK through various events and activities, including having two of my poems published as a testimony to my grandfather who suffered with the disease in a book being sold for charity.
