Each month the British Youth Council – the charity that runs the UK Youth Parliament – invites youth representatives, including Members of Youth Parliament (MYPs), Deputy Members of Youth Parliament (DMYPs), Youth Councillors, Young Mayors and Deputy Young Mayors, to share their stories of the positive activities they have been engaging in recently.
This also gives workers the opportunity to update us on the activities of the youth groups they work with and support. The British Youth Council shares this report regionally and nationally, with local councillors and MPs, in order to raise the profile of the fantastic local work that we know is happening every day.
May’s report is available to download below. The case studies and stories of the work of young people in their local communities are reproduced here in their own words.
The report is broken down by region and Local Authority so you can easily see what the young people in your area have been up to. This is an ongoing project and over the next year we will produce and share a report similar to this one, once a month, providing young people the opportunity to shout about the great work they have been doing in their local areas during the previous month.
