The Youth Select Committee (YSC) is a British Youth Council
initiative, supported by the House of Commons. The eleven committee
members are aged 13-18 and include two Members of the UK Youth
Parliament (MYPs), two youth councillors, a Young Mayor,
one elected representative from each of the devolved nations and
three reserved seats.
This year's Youth Select Committee will focus on mental health
services, which has been chosen by UK Youth Parliament as the
priority campaign, following Make Your Mark (90,549 young people
voted for it) and the House of Commons Sitting and is highlighted
in the British Youth Council's manifesto.
For more information, please contact:
Anna Sterckx, National Projects Co-ordinator at the
British Youth Council on 07956 681150 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2015 Youth Select Committee will embark on an inquiry
into mental health services, where it will explore the issues and
arguments around awareness, education and services.
