What's it all about?
UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) is run by young people for young people, and Suffolk UKYP is part of the SAY network.
In Suffolk the MYPs and DMYPs (Deputy/Members of Youth Parliament) work to represent the views of young people in this county and regionally.
They all assist in running Make Your Mark, the UK's largest youth consultation. There are also opportunities to attend British Youth Council conventions and debate in the House of Commons. Above all being part of UKYP gives you the opportunity to meet new people, make lasting friends and make a difference.
UKYP gives young people a powerful voice that is heard by decision makers in local and national government and helps young people to use their energy and passion to change the world for the better.
Being an MYP is all about finding out the views of young people and presenting their views, opinions and issues to local decision makers, as well as being a collective voice for young people in Suffolk.
