The Scottish Youth Parliament in Youth Voice Groups
The Scottish Youth Parliament supports young people to identify and tackle the issues that affect them.
The Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) is a politically-independent organisation that seeks to represent the views of young people in Scotland. It is made up of 150 young people aged 14-25 from across Scotland who represent constituencies and national voluntary organisations.
The SYP represents Scotland’s young people. Democratically elected members listen to and recognise the issues that are important to young people, ensuring that their voices are heard by the government and formal decision makers.
A series of sittings are held throughout the year for representatives to attend and discuss the issues young people are experiencing and how to best tackle them.
