“We hosted three sessions in schools where MPs and local Councillors talked to young people about their jobs, Parliament and democracy. We also organised two lunches where students were able to talk to local politicians in a more informal setting.
Being a UK Parliament Week partner means you’re provided with resources, support and ideas on how to participate. If other organisations are thinking about taking part, I would say its worthwhile getting involved! We gained national media coverage for our events and activities as well as helping young people better understand the UK Parliament.”
