Brent Youth Parliament Wembley

Brent Youth Parliament, (BYP) is the voice that represents the 77,500 young people in Brent. Founded in 2007, the members strive to amplify the opinions of Brent's youth in the local council. We meet on the last Saturday of every month at the Brent Civic Centre to discuss important issues, which young people face on a regular basis.

BYP is a group for young people in Brent to express their views and have a say about decisions that affect them.

The youth parliament is made up of young people aged 10-19 years old, from all walks of life.

Parliament members decide on the issues that they want to look at (these are called portfolios) and then work with councillors and council officers to bring about changes that will improve local services for young people.

Members also choose one campaign that they want to work on every year.

When and where is it?
The BYP meets every last Saturday of the month from 10am-1pm at Brent Civic Centre.

If you would like to become a member, please contact our Strategic Youth Engagement Officer, Samantha Dottin.

Quotes from young people

'Brent Youth Parliament is the perfect platform to get your voice heard and share your opinions. It is a very non-judgemental and friendly environment which is what encouraged me to stay on as a member for the past five years. The meetings consist of different formats of debate consultations skills training Councillor hotseats education on the political system and much more. Through the debates and skills training you are able to grow yourself in a comfortable environment where it is much less daunting to practice things such as your public speaking skills. Each year an executive and a campaign are voted on during an election. I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to be elected the Chair of BYP as well as play a part in the planning committee for the campaign tackling unemployment.

As a member of the executive you are able to sit on boards and committees which allows you to influence the changes taking place first hand. Through taking up these opportunities I was able to meet many young people like myself and gain so many new friendships. I have gained knowledge and skills through my time and have met people that have taught me so much such as various Councillors and Nicola. There are so many opportunities offered to you and your time as a member of BYP is what you make it!'
