Young people are encouraged to stand for youth parliament
YOUNG people aged between 11 and 18 are invited to represent the voices of their peers from across the county by standing for election to the UK Youth Parliament.
Members of Youth Parliament get to meet MPS, run local and national campaigns as well as having the opportunity to debate within the House of Commons on a range of issues that affect young people in Britain.
