What is the Enfield Youth Council?
The Enfield Youth Council (EYC) is a local youth council, which consists of 25-27 Young Members aged between 11 and 17 years old or up to 25 if they have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Enfield Youth Council Members have a responsibility to the whole community, to champion the needs of all young people in the borough and to represent their views. In doing so, EYC Members will make sure the young people they serve have a voice in the community, in improving services, and in positively influencing policy and key decisions the council makes on local issues.
What is UK Youth Parliament?
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. Enfield currently has an allocation of 2 MYP seats at the UK Youth Parliament.
