Welcome to the JPF Blog!

A dedicated part of our website for young people where all the content is written by young people!

Here you can find blogposts written by people aged between 11-25 on any and all topics.

This offers you a chance to gain some real life writing experience; you will have to work towards a deadline and be given a chance for your work to be read over and edited by members of our PR team well experienced in writing, so that you can continuously improve upon your skills. This will make a wonderful addition to any CV!

If you would like to take part, please send an e-mail to pr@petchey.co.uk with some information about yourself and your proposal for a blog post! We hope to hear from you soon!
