UK Youth Parliament is a programme run by the British Youth Council. They provide opportunities for 11 to 18 year olds to use their voice in creative ways to bring about social change.

Every year Dorset's young people elect:

  • 2 members of UK Youth Parliament (MYP)
  • 2 deputy members of Youth Parliament (DMYP)

These members represent Dorset nationally. They attend national events throughout the year including:

  • the UK Youth Parliament's annual sitting
  • the annual House of Commons debate
