The UK Youth Parliament programme is supported and delivered by the British Youth Council, the national youth council of the United Kingdom.

The UK Youth Parliament provides opportunities for 11-17-year-olds to use their elected voice to bring about social change through meaningful representation and campaigning nationally. Members of Youth Parliament (MYPs) are elected locally and supported by their constituency.

There are 379 seats across 205 constituencies. Ruth and Isabelle meet with MPs and local councillors, organise events, run campaigns, make speeches, hold debates, and ensure the views of young people are listened to by decision makers. UK Youth Parliament meet together nationally twice a year, at their Annual Conference, and the House of Commons Sitting.
