Sheffield Youth Cabinet and UK Youth Parliament

The Sheffield Youth Cabinet and UK Youth Parliament enable young people to have a say in some of the major decisions of the moment, at a local, regional and national level.

The young people are aged 11 — 18 and come from different areas, backgrounds and abilities. Together, they bring young people’s concerns, views and opinions to influence key decision makers locally, regionally and nationally to help bring about improvement and change.

The group meet regularly to work on their campaigns, events and points of action. Campaigns are chosen by the largest youth consultation in the UK: Make Your Mark, find out more here. Each year thousands of young people vote on the issues that are important to them and then the Youth Parliament debate these issues in the House of Commons.

What do the Sheffield Youth Cabinet do?

The Sheffield Youth Cabinet aim to represent the voice of all young people aged 11-18 who live in Sheffield. As a part of their role they work on campaigns to make adults and other young people look at and listen to the issues that you want seen and heard. This work is voluntary and they are all passionate about making Sheffield and the UK a better and fairer place for young people.
