The Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) represents Scotland’s young people. Democratically elected members, aged 14-25, listen to and recognise the issues that are most important to young people, ensuring that their voices are heard by decision makers.

Youth Councillors meet once a month to discuss issues of local importance to young people. They also represent young people’s views to the council and are consulted on issues affecting young people.
