British Youth Council

Partner Organisation

We empower young people aged 25 and under to influence and inform the decisions that affect their lives. We support young people to get involved in their communities and democracy, making a difference as volunteers, campaigners, decision-makers and leaders.

We are a youth-led organisation with a diverse membership, from local youth councils to large national youth organisations; faith groups and young farmers, students and Scouts.

We run the UK Youth Parliament and manage youth democracy programmes including the Young Mayors and the Youth Select Committee.

Engaging young people in our democracy is at the heart of what we do and we are joining forces with to support young people to consider issues of faith, religion and culture in society, to explore the relationship between faith and democracy, and to find creative ways to express themselves and their ideas.
