Kicsters learn that Jeremy Corbyn is visiting Walsall and come up with a number of questions they would like to ask him. The focus of their questions were around the right to vote from the age of 16, how Jeremy would support young people, including those who have been empowered to take positive social action in their community, and what actions Jeremy would take when Britain leaves the European Union. Kicsters then recorded a short video of which has been sent to Jeremy Corbyns office.
Kicsters also discussed the support they would like to see for young people, especially those whose families are living on the breadline, want to learn new skills to equip them for work and those who are lonely.
