Liverpool Schools' Parliament

The Parliament gives an opportunity for the young people of Liverpool to have a voice on matters of concern and to be heard by the people who have influence in the running of the city of Liverpool. The Parliament meets as 2 separate Houses. The Upper House represents those young people aged 11-19. The Lower House represents those young people aged 7-11. Meetings of the Parliament take place in the Council Chamber of Liverpool Town Hall. Liverpool Schools’ Parliament is an official committee of Liverpool City Council. All decisions made by the Parliament are passed on to Liverpool City Council.
