Iain Duncan Smith to visit Gravesend today
The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Iain Duncan Smith
visits Gravesend today.
The politician will be visiting a garage launched by the young
people’s charity Catch22.
Auto22 on the Lions Business Park offers servicing and repairs
for all makes and models of cars and light vans.
It provides hands-on work experience, work placements, training
and apprenticeships to unemployed young people who would not
otherwise have the opportunity.
Mr Duncan Smith will visit the garage at 11am.
Auto22’s chairman Nikki King said: “One of my passions is to
help and mentor young people, which I’ve been doing for many years
through associations with various charities and organisations.
“I was recently involved in the government’s advertising
campaign for auto enrolment in company pensions and along with the
other company heads was invited to have tea with Iain Duncan
“I talked to him about Auto22 and my ambition to get more
experienced business people involved in mentoring young people.
“He was very interested and readily accepted my invitation to
visit Auto 22 in Gravesend to see what we are achieving. We are
very excited that he is able to join us this week.”
