UK Youth Parliament
The UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) is made up of over 600 elected representatives, all aged 11-18. They participate in the UKYP either as a Member of Youth Parliament (MYP) or Deputy Member of Youth Parliament (DMYP), and serve the young people within the area they represent.
MYPs and DMYPs work to organise and run campaigns, influence decision-makers at a national and regional level, and take part in high-profile events to demonstrate that young people do have a voice, do care, and want to make an impact.
Reading's MYP for 2013-14 is Daniel Carey. Daniel, a pupil of Prospect School, will have the opportunity to attend a national sitting of the UKYP over a weekend in July, and also attend a debate in the House of Commons later this year.
Daniel is supported by Readings Deputy MYP, Beth, who will accompany Daniel to regional meetings of the UKYP, as well as ensuring that the Reading Youth Cabinet work closely with Daniel and the UKYP so that the young people of Reading are well represented.
This page will regularly be updated with Daniel and Beth's progress throughout the year
