James Duddridge MP of Rochford and Southend East has been nominated for the inaugural Grassroot Diplomat Initiative Award. The award looks to recognise outstanding diplomats and politicians in the UK for their dedication, commitment and selfless efforts in representing civilian matters at the highest level.

Nominated under the Business Driver category, Mr Duddridge is raising awareness of funding secured by Southend Council for 50 new apprentices. The MP recognises that apprenticeships are a valuable way to assist in reducing youth unemployment and he has been vocal in promoting this programme to residents in his constituency.

Talyn Rahman-Figueroa, Director of Grassroot Diplomat said, “Grassroot diplomacy empowers the voiceless, defines a path for the hopeless, and restores faith to influencers. The Initiative Award seeks to build trust again between the ‘us and them’ and bring people of all statuses together.”

Mr Duddridge is committed to engaging the grassroots in its combined efforts to overturn the local economic crisis, and for this, his efforts are being recognised here.

Over 50 high-level government officials have been nominated in 3 categories but there can only be six winners. Join James Duddridge and other government nominees at the Vincent Rooms, Westminster with evening performance led by Euro-Vision Song Contest artist, Imaani.
