UK Youth Parliament

The UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) provides opportunities for young people aged 11 to 18 to use their voice in creative ways to bring about social change. Decision makers across the UK use UKYP as a mechanism to seek the views of young people.

NIYF coordinates the UKYP in Northern Ireland, looking after the allocation of 18 Members of the Youth Parliament (MYP’s). The group were elected in February 2014 and will their seats until February 2015.  The group will be working hard to seek the views of young people from around NI, and engage them in campaigning and lobbying.

Procedures Group

UKYP’s Procedures Group (PG) make the decisions that guide the development of UKYP, and agree the arrangements for each Annual Sitting. The Procedures Group is made up of one ex MYP from each region within the UK, who have been nominated by their region to represent the views of their MYPs at a national level. It aims to physically meet a minimum of five times a year.
