The Minister for Civil Society has been in Norwich meeting some of the 1,100 young people from across the eastern region who are taking part in the government's national citizenship scheme.

Nationwide, 30,000 young people between the ages of 16 and 19 are spending four weeks in the summer working together and helping the community. The scheme is aimed at building skills and confidence.
