Joining with over 900,000 young people from every corner of the country, the Scouts helped to take part in the UKs largest youth consultation.


Following a presentation of his work at the Youth Parliament, Jack Horder, visited the Scouts and discussed the topics that were to be voted on.

Ten Subjects were discussed ranging from voting for young people from
16 years old through to Mental Health services and protection for LGBT+ people

 

At the end of the evening Jack, himself an Explorer from Newton Abbot said,

“It was great to see the Scouts fully engaged and discussing the topics as a group”.

The ballot will decide what Members of the UK Youth Parliament should debate and vote on to be their campaign for in 2018. The debate will take place in November 2017 within the House of Commons.
