Prime Minister visits Carterton youth project

David Cameron MP visited the Allandale Youth Centre in Carterton on 22 June. During his visit he met children and young people who are benefitting from new activities which are being provided at the centre.

He also spoke with representatives of the RAF Benevolent Fund, the RAF's leading welfare charity, which is providing trained youth workers at the centre as part of its £24 million national Airplay project.

David Cameron visits Airplay

Airplay works alongside RAF community development workers and is designed to relieve strain on busy RAF parents by giving their children access to enhanced activity programmes and much-improved play and childcare facilities. 

Paul Hughesdon, Director of Welfare and Policy at the RAF Benevolent Fund said: "I am delighted to have had the chance to speak with the Prime Minister today and to reinforce the excellent effect that the Airplay programme is having on RAF families across the UK and in Cyprus. 

"Airplay really is a Big Society project, making a strong contribution to building a better, healthier society in Oxfordshire and elsewhere  - and crucially relieving pressure on RAF mums and dads, at home and on the front line.

"As well as the childcare centre that we have built at RAF Brize Norton and the youth workers based at the Allandale Centre we are also building a brand new state-of-the-art play park for children in the area, and I was delighted to invite the Prime Minister to attend the opening of this much-needed facility in the summer."
