Age - it's just a number!

During the last year I have been supporting groups and teams to respect diversity and value each other and have also worked with individuals to help them to value themselves. This short blog has a strand running through it which is relevant to both areas of work.

During the last few months’ politics in Britain have provided some surprises, including the election of two people for whom their moment in time has come, both sharing a journey but at different points on the age timeline: Jeremy Corbyn elected as Leader of the Labour Party at the age of 66 after being in politics for over 40 years and 20-year-old student Mhairi Black becoming Britians youngest MP since 1667.
