Patron of Tomorrow's People, Maidstone Region
The overarching mission of national charity Tomorrow's People is to break the cycle of unemployment and dependency by helping the most disadvantaged to get, and keep, a job. Nationally Tomorrow's People has assisted over 400,000 long-term unemployed people since 1984. Helen's role as Patron is to help promote and develop the charity in a multitude of ways locally, regionally and nationally. Helen commented 'The work of Tomorrow's People is not just about jobs, it is about self esteem, self confidence and unlocking some of the pathways to achieving the elusive goal of social mobility, something that is close to my own heart and my political platform'.
