UK Youth Parliament

The UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) enables young people to use their energy and passion to change the world for the better.

The UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) enables young people to use their energy and passion to change the world for the better.

Run by young people for young people, UKYP provides opportunities for 11 to 19 years (up to 25 years with SEND) to use their voice in creative ways to bring about social change. The UKYP gives the young people of the UK a voice which is heard and listened to by local and national government, providers of services for young people and other agencies who have an interest in the views and needs of young people.

The UKYP has 600 elected Members of the Youth Parliament (MYP). MYPs are elected in annual youth elections in February throughout the UK. Any young person aged 11 to 18 can stand or vote. In the past two years one million young people have voted in UK Youth Parliament elections.

Once elected MYPs organise events and projects, run campaigns and influence decision makers on the issues which matter most to young people. All MYPs meet once a year at the UK Youth Parliament Annual Sitting and attend regional meetings throughout the year.

Thousands of young people help decide the UKYP campaign priorities via the Make Your Mark ballot held in September supported by schools and young people organisations. Current year's campaigns are to stop Knife Crime and Protecting the Environment.
