Stand for Election to the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP)

Elections take place in between Jan 29 and Feb 10 2019

UK Youth Parliament offers 11-18 year olds the opportunity to use their elected voice to bring about social change through meaningful representation and campaigning. You can make that change by standing for election in 2019.

Aged between 11 and 18 years and living or going to boarding school in Wiltshire, you must be ready to engage with and represent children and young people in your area.

Wiltshire has three seats on UKYP. You will be standing for election in the area where you attend school. The seats are:

Wiltshire East 

Amesbury, Marlborough, Pewsey, Tidworth, Salisbury and Southern Wiltshire

Wiltshire North   

Calne, Chippenham, Corsham, Devizes, Malmesbury and Royal Wootton Bassett and Cricklade.

Wiltshire West

Bradford on Avon, Melksham, South West Wiltshire, Trowbridge, Warminster and Westbury.

Creating your manifesto

Candidates will be asked to submit a video-manifesto for use during the campaign and election period.

By standing for election to UKYP you are agreeing to:

  • serve a one-year term as one of three members of UKYP for Wiltshire
  • be a champion for young people’s issues locally and nationally 
  • become an active member of the Wiltshire Assembly of Youth (WAY)
  • work with your locally elected councillors and MPs to promote youth voice
  • attend regional conventions of the UKYP (three Saturdays per year)
  • attend the annual conference of UKYP a residential weekend at the end of July
  • attend the House of Commons debate in November each year
  • deliver the Make Your Mark youth voice campaign and other UKYP campaigns
  • a video of your manifesto being published on YouTube, the Wiltshire Council website and social media, as appropriate
