What will your Youth MP do for Camden? 

The Youth MP, and two Deputy Youth MPs, will have a two-year term and be the voice for Camden young people, seeking to put forward their interests in local decision-making, as well as representing the views and interests of local young people at regional and national level through the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP).

  • attend the UKYP event at the House of Commons to debate and vote on national campaigns
