The Youth Select Committee is a British Youth Council initiative, supported by the House of Commons. The eleven committee members are aged 11-18 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 knife crime, which was voted the top issue in the Make Your Mark ballot of over 1.1 million young people.

We want to hear from you!
