Students: we get lots of requests from students for interviews. We try our best to accommodate these but during busy campaigning periods we don't always have the capacity to be able to do so. We apologise for these occasions and hope you understand that the work of the charity needs to be prioritised. If you have a request, please email commsteam@livingstreets.org.uk with as much notice as possible.
