Many groups and organisations in Lincolnshire are working together to ensure that a bright future can be had by Lincolnshire’s children and young people, because lots of families in Lincolnshire work very hard but still struggle learning together and full filling their potential.

This week celebrations in Lincolnshire took place to highlight the achievements and talents of children and young people as a result of the government scheme ‘Every Child Matters’.

The Government’s aim is for every child, whatever their background or their circumstances, to have the support they need to:

  • Be healthy,
  • Stay safe,
  • Enjoy and achieve,
  • Make a positive contribution
  • Achieve economic well-being.

Recognising the talents of Young people in Lincolnshire is a big part of the scheme. Listen here to  a performance from the celebration event held at the Drill Hall on Wednesday evening.  Molly Lyon performs, ’Feeling good’ by Nina Simone.

To hear from mums’ Nikki Urquant and Sandra Searle talking about their experiences with the Sure Start children’s centre in Birchwood, Lincoln listen live to: CityVibe@5 on Siren 107.3 FM.
