Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London

“MLMS was instrumental in ensuring young Londoners were involved in the recent London Mayoral Elections through the #DareToDream campaign. Interviewing all the Mayoral Candidates, including myself, gave us all an insight into what our young people expected from us as their elected representatives. MLMS’ work to date has impressed me and I look forward to engaging with some of their future programmes. It’s a pleasure to support such an energetic, thriving, and growing charity.”

The Rt Hon Nick Clegg MP, former Deputy Prime Minister of the UK 2010 – 2015 & Leader of the Liberal Democrats Party

“Far too often young people are excluded from the decision-making process but it is organisations like MLMS who do a fantastic job to develop relationships between young people and decision-makers. Get involved and support MLMS to be part of the change that you want to see.”

Alastair Campbell, Former Director of Communications & Strategy for PM Tony Blair (1997-2003)

“I have long been a supporter of MLMS, both the thinking behind it, and the people involved. Too many middle aged and older people fall into the trap of thinking young people don’t care about politics, or don’t know about politics. There are some people in all age groups of whom that can be said, but if you are looking for real and powerful political passion, you will often find it in younger people. Yet too many are disengaged because of the way our politics is done and covered. MLMS does a fantastic job at breaking down that disengagement, helping young people to see why political engagement matters, and why they should, and more importantly how they can make a difference.”

Nick De Bois, former MP for Enfield North & Chairman of Zac Goldsmith’s London Mayoral Campaign

“The decisions being made by the electorate, and by the politicians they elect often have the most significance for younger people who will have to live with the choices being made. It follows, that the more younger people we can encourage to engage in politics and have their say in the future the better. That’s why I continue to support the aims and objectives of MyLifeMySay and the work they are doing.”

June Sarpong MBE, TV presenter

“Members of MLMS are proof that the best days of this country is ahead of us. You are the next generation of entrepreneurs, inventors, campaigners and dare I say it politicians that will ensure that Britain continues to punch well above its weight in the world.”

Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP, Former Leader of the Labour party (2010-2015)

“Change can only happen when people demand it. That is the reason why this organisation is really important, is because it is the way political change happens – make sure you support MYLIFEMYSAY, be part of it and spread the word!”

Central Workings

“It is a real pleasure having MLMS based here in our Central Working in Whitechapel. This youth-led charitable organisation has the superb purpose of getting young people engaged in politics, which is something Central Working strongly supports. Mete, who heads up the campaign, is a valued community member, open to connecting with many of our other SME’s, in order to collaborate on some of the exciting projects. Kin & Co, and other Central Working members in the charity sector, have all met with MLMS, either to discuss their own political campaigns, or to help Mete support MLMS. As a workspace, Central Working is delighted to assist MLMS wherever possible, whether making useful connections, hosting workshops and events, or pushing out the charities developments to our Community.”
