Chairman visits project improving prospects of disadvantaged young people

Buckinghamshire County Council Chairman Val Letheren paid a visit to the Aylesbury Youth Motor Project (AYMP) last week to find out more about the organisation which aims to boost the confidence and career opportunities of lesser advantaged young people.

Accompanied by High Sheriff Milly Soames, the pair were introduced to the young people benefitting from the project which offers training in vehicle repairs and maintenance and given a guided tour of the facility. The organisation, based in Edison Road, has been running for over 10 years and has helped hundreds of young people to develop skills and gain qualifications and confidence to achieve.

Speaking after the visit Val said: “What an amazing place. It’s fantastic that so many young people from disadvantaged backgrounds have been given this opportunity to improve their lives, gaining confidence and skills for the future. Well done to them and the team who help run such a valuable community project.”
