The UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) provides opportunities for 11-18 year olds to encourage young people in their local area to make a difference on issues that matter to them.
10 candidates have been selected to represent the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP), one of which is from the Staffordshire Moorlands.
Rosie Hurst, from Staffordshire, is looking to stand in the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) for Antisocial Behaviour, Mental Health and E-Safety.
Rosie’s says “I’m from Endon High School and I would really like to be a Member of Youth Parliament because it can help my political knowledge more and hopefully let me get more involved in politics when I’m older. I would also like to represent the young voices in Staffordshire. My three issues for Staffordshire’s young people are improving antisocial behaviour, improving mental health services in school and improving e-safety in school.”
Voting is now open on the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) website where you can cast your votes.
