Supporting Young People

Stephen has always argued for more investment in Pembrokeshire’s young people. He worked closely with Haverfordwest Skate Association to get the new skatepark built on time. Over the last 10 years he has helped dozens of local young people make a start in working life through work placements and paid internships. Stephen is passionate about education and has spoken out in support of keeping Ysgol Dewi Sant open. He has urged Pembrokeshire County Council to review its secondary education proposals which threaten the future of sixth forms in schools across the County.

Education is a very important issue that shapes our society. Stephen is committed to improving educational standards across Pembrokeshire. We are lucky that, in Pembrokeshire, our children have access to a number of high performing schools. However it is important that we still push our schools to continually improve to ensure that we create young people who are ready to fulfil their dream and aspirations whatever they may be.
