Scottish Youth Parliament

The Scottish Youth Parliament is the democratically elected voice of Scotland’s young people.  We are a young people’s parliament, designed by young people and led by young people for the benefit of young people.  We are committed to ensuring young people are heard by the decision makers of Scotland and we are determined to campaign on the issues which matter most to Scotland’s youth.

The Scottish Youth Parliament constantly campaigns on behalf of Scotland's young people. Our National Campaign for 2015, POVERTY: See It Change It, aims to combat child and youth poverty. 

The Scottish Youth Parliament has campaigned on a number of issues which Scotland's young people have shown matter to them. Many of these campaigns have been hugely successful and contributed to positive changes in legislation to make Scotland a fairer society. In September 2012 we launched One Fair Wage, a campaign to build support for a Scottish Living Wage. Our Love Equally Campaign won Campaign of the Year at the Scottish Charity of the Year Awards, and contributed to the Scottish Government's historic decision to legalise same-sex marriage when the bill was debated at stage 3 in the Scottish Parliament on February 4th 2014. You can find information about our current and past campaigns on the Public Affairs page.
