The Scottish Youth Parliament holds a very diverse demographic breakdown of membership, which is reflective of Scotland’s young people. We engage with more young people from hard to reach groups so that their voices are heard, their campaigns and issues are heard and they themselves are able to influence decision-makers. Young people that would not ordinarily participate in mainstream processes stand in the SYP elections in order to have their say. There is no other platform for young people to influence and become involved in democracy than through the work of the Scottish Youth Parliament.
