UK Parliament Week 2017 was our biggest and most successful year yet. With 4,596 events taking place across the UK, there was something for everyone to get involved with, and over 360,000 people participated in some way.
It started with the annual UK Youth Parliament sitting in the House of Commons, where MYPs debated the most important issues for young people across the UK.

Throughout the week and all across the UK schools, uniformed organisations, faith groups and community groups held events and activities to engage with the UK Parliament, explore what it means them and empower them to get involved.
