Dr Sarah Mills gives evidence to the House of Lords

Dr Sarah Mills has been called to give oral evidence to the House of Lords Select Committee on Citizenship and Civic Engagement on Wednesday 11th October. The Committee will take evidence from witnesses on the current state of civic engagement amongst young people in the UK, and how volunteering fits in with democratic engagement and political participation.  Sarah has specifically been called to give oral evidence on the role of National Citizen Service (NCS) and the broader citizenship landscape, based on her invited written evidence and recent ESRC research.  She previously submitted evidence to the House of Commons committee on the NCS Bill and Royal Charter and currently sits on an oversight group of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Democratic Participation.  Other witnesses at Wednesday’s committee hearing include the Chief Executives of NCS Trust, The Scout Association, and ‘Step up to Serve’.
