Youth Services and Parliament
We work with young people aged between 10 and 25 to promote and support their personal development, social education, health and well being.
We work particularly closely with young people aged 13-19 to enable them to have a voice and a positive place in their communities and society.
We provide young people in Nottinghamshire with something to do, somewhere to go and someone to talk to in the form of youth groups, mobile youth projects and events.

Members of Youth Parliament (MYPs) are elected in every part of the UK.
There are eight MYPs for Nottinghamshire - one for each of the seven districts and an additional MYP who represents children and young people with learning and physical difficulties. MYPs are aged between 11- and 18-years-old and are elected for a two year period.
Once elected MYPs meet with MPs and local councillors, organise events, run campaigns, make speeches, hold debates and ensure the views of young people are listened to by decision makers.
The most important aspect of any MYPs job is to make sure they represent the views of the young people in their constituency. Any MYP can set up a campaign, and any young person can support it and make a difference.
Nottinghamshire MYPs are supported by Nottinghamshire County Council's Children and Young Peoples Participation Team.
