Ann Coffey MP has praised as ‘trailblazers’ young people who worked as equal partners with professionals in designing an innovative health project.
The MP for Stockport presented awards at Salford University MediaCityUK to pupils from St Anne’s in Stockport for their contribution to the ‘Not Just a Thought…’ project.
Ann Coffey MP has welcomed the introduction of a new National Missing Persons Register as the number of missing children incidents in Greater Manchester continues to increase.
The new Register, to be introduced in 2018, will allow police forces to access information about children going missing across force boundaries, which they cannot do at the moment.
