Local MP nominates media charity for special youth award

To celebrate the work of youth media charity Exposure, Lynne Featherstone MP today nominated the organisation for a special MPs youth award.

The Muswell Hill based organisation that produces the Exposure Magazine by and for young people, was nominated by the Liberal Democrat MP for a Kids Count Inspiration Award for their commitment to young people in Haringey. The youth award that only MPs can send in nominations for, recognises individuals and organisations that have inspired young people in their communities.

Exposure magazine is written by and for young people and cover serious issues that affect young people, like dealing with divorce and mental health issues.

This year’s Inspiration Awards winner will be announced at the House of Commons on the 8th May.

Lynne Featherstone MP comments:

“Exposure is a really inspirational youth charity that does fantastic work with young people from across Haringey. They work with teenagers from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, boosting their media skills, their confidence and their CVs, and helping to pave the way for a brighter future.

“Every time I’ve visited Exposure, I have been struck by what an amazing job they do. That’s why I really jumped at the opportunity to nominate them for a Kids Count Award. They do inspirational work, and really deserve this recognition, so fingers crossed for the 8th May.”

Exposure manager Andreas Koumi adds:

“We’re honoured to be nominated for an Inspiration Award by our local MP. It’s a tremendous boost for our staff and young people during these challenging times, and a real endorsement of the hard work they all put in.”
