COUNCILLORS are getting out and about this week in a bid to make politics more relevant to young people.
Politicians from across Norfolk are supporting Local Democracy Week, by visiting a number of the county's youth projects.
The aim of the initiative is to help young people understand how local government works and how they can get involved.
County Council leader Daniel Cox and Cabinet member for children's services Shelagh Hutson will both be meeting young voters, to hear their views.

Cllr Hutson said: “We want Norfolk's young people to understand that they have a voice and can play an important part in shaping the future of their communities.
“Local Democracy Week gives us an opportunity to show that their experiences and their opinions really do matter. This helps young people to feel valued and, in turn, can raise their aspirations and ambitions.”
