Hackney Youth Parliament 2014

About the Hackney Youth Parliament

Nearly 7,500 young people voted in the 2014 Hackney Youth Parliament election. Following months of writing manifestos, speaking at hustings and trying to convince class mates and those at local youth centres to vote for them, 28 young people aged 11-19 were chosen to represent the youth of Hackney.

The Parliament represents two Hackney constituencies, Hackney North and Hackney South, together with members from specialist forums (young people with disabilities, LGBT forums, Young Carers and Looked-after Children).

Youth Parliament aims

  • To be the voice of and represent the views of young people in Hackney
  • To regularly consult young people in Hackney on their views
  • To be involved in decision-making with the Council, Councillors etc.
  • To have an impact and make positive change
  • To keep young people in Hackney informed on things affecting them

HYP values the commitment of its members, working together, listening to young people, being inclusive and tacking the issues that matter to young people.

HYP believes every young person has the right to have their say and get involved regardless of gender, religion, race, sexuality, origin, identity, disability or for any other reason will have their membership taken away.
