The Youth Select Committee is supported by the House of Commons. The twelve committee members are aged 14-18 and include representatives from young people involved in various programmes and groups across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

This year, the Youth Select Committee will be exploring the impact of the cost of living crisis on young people's health and wellbeing.

The Youth Select Committee will take and hear written and oral evidence in UK Parliament, before presenting a report with recommendations to the UK Government.
