What is UK Parliament Week?
UK Parliament Week (UKPW) is a celebration of people power. You’ll get a kit that helps you get informed about your UK Parliament, take action and make an impact on the issues you care about.
Last year almost 1 million people took part in every nation and region of the UK, and countries all over the world.
What’s in it for you?
When you sign up, we’ll post you a free kit packed with goodies including an activity booklet, a ballot box, some seeds to plant, and more!
You can pick and choose from the options in the booklet to tailor your UK Parliament Week activity to suit whatever time you have available and age groups you’re working with.
Plan ahead or just open your kit and go! Taking part is that easy!
Will COVID-19 affect UKPW?
Taking part might feel a little different if there are lockdown restrictions, but you can get involved wherever you are. Your booklet includes tips on adapting activities so you can take part online, at home or in small groups.

- debating issues and holding votes
- themed assemblies and school council elections

- virtual chats with MPs, members of the House of Lords, local councillors or mayors, MLAs, MSs and MSPs
