Getting the voice of young people heard in Wiltshire is the primary aim of the UK Youth Parliament. It gives 11-to-18-year-olds the chance to make a difference in their area by representing their age groups and making their voices heard. Young people are being encouraged to bring about social change by standing in the UK Youth Parliament elections.
Issues concerning young people currently could be votes at 16, knife crime or another topic.
What would you change if you had the power to influence it?
