This summer’s activities will include sport, hair and beauty classes, music production and arts and crafts sessions.

He said he hoped the scheme would create opportunities for young people to take part in positive activities.

“I am already excited to get out and see young people across Staffordshire enjoying the Space 2016 activities,” he said. “Last year saw more than 13,300 attendances by young people at over 580 activities and it was great to see such positive sessions taking place.

“I have pledged money to fund activities with an aim to increase personal skills and improve health and general wellbeing by creating opportunities for young people to get involved in and at the same time improve engagement with public and voluntary organisations.”
