It’s your UK Parliament. Your democracy. Everything that happens here is about you, and driven by you. What you think about how we work matters, and you have the power to shape it. We want to drive up the number of people involved in UK Parliament and elections, influencing what we do and how the country is run.
Last year we launched our Your UK Parliament Awards to recognise people who have played a role in shaping our agenda and making UK Parliament more accessible to people throughout the UK.
From organising school visits so that young people understand how democracy works, through to digital campaigns to drive up participation in elections, it all makes a difference. Activities big and small have helped drive engagement with UK Parliament and influence how we work.
This year, our awards are back and they are bigger and better than ever. Your UK Parliament Awards recognise the impact that people across the UK have on UK Parliament.
From simple things like highlighting an issue of personal or local importance, through to campaigns capable of grabbing national headlines, this is your opportunity to highlight the difference you’ve made. Your stories will help inspire others to get involved, so enter now to share your achievements and be part of our story.
