The British Youth Council have been developing, debating and voting to select the five issues described within this manifesto, in the year leading up to the election. The topics show that there is still a lot to do before young people in the UK today are treated fairly and equally in society. It can be tough being a young person in the UK when - you aren't paid equally; you don't always get the healthcare you need, and you have fewer places to go when your local youth club has been closed. This is our vision and calls to action from the Government between 2015-2020 which we will emphasise or add with annual priorities.

We want OUR Parliament to: Reduce the voting age for parliamentary and other public elections, across the UK, to 16 years.

We want OUR Parliament to:  Recognise that our minds matter, and improve the access to and quality of our mental health services.

We want OUR Parliament to: Ensure that everyone is paid the Living Wage.

We want OUR Parliament to: Take the lead in restoring levels of funding for youth services that has been cut in recent years.
