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.

Luton MP Gavin Shuker is running his own summer camp with the same aim. Those who attend will learn something about politics and as well as work with local charities
