UK Youth Parliament

Would you like to represent Hackney in the House of Commons and help create campaigns for young people across the UK? If you’re aged 11 – 18 you could stand for UK Youth Parliament – just fill in the form on this page to put yourself forward as a candidate.

The UK Youth Parliament provides opportunities for 11-18 year olds to use their elected voice to bring about social change through meaningful representation and campaigning.

They run an annual consultation with young people across the country called Make Your Mark, which helps decide the two campaigning issues over the year. The campaign themes for 2017 are:

  • Votes at 16
  • A curriculum for life

You can find out more about their work on the UK Youth Parliament home page.
