Candidates needed for Barnet's Youth Parliament
Young people have the chance to represent Barnet in the UK’s Youth Parliament.
Anyone between the ages of 11 and 18 can apply to become a Member of Youth Parliament and have their chance to speak out about issues affecting young people.
After the applications are received, the candidates’ profiles will be uploaded online and voted for by people under 18 in the borough. Elections will then take place on March 4.
There will be four members for Barnet, with two deputy members.
Councillor Andrew Harper said: “It’s great to see our young people making such a positive impact and gaining a valuable insight into the democratic process. I look forward to welcoming our new members of the UKYP.
“Applications have already started to come in and I am keen to see an even greater number of candidates in the running this year.”
To register contact the Barnet Borough Council on 020 8359 4373 or email email@example.com before the deadline on Wednesday January 16.
