Encouraging Young Leaders

One of the Archbishop’s key areas of focus is supporting and encouraging young people in England.

I have the highest admiration for young people and I believe very strongly that they are dreamers, they are idealists, they believe it is possible to make poverty history and to have a world without war and where there is no hunger. I want to be able to enable young people to change the world.
