Schools’ Parliament Campaigns 2015-16

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services [CAMHS] – Schools’ Parliament is aware that there appears to be an increase in number of young people needing to access CAMHS services in Liverpool. Therefore there is a need to better advertise services on offer in Liverpool.


Meaningful Work Experience – for whatever reason, some schools in Liverpool no longer offer Work Experience to their students. Schools Parliament does offer Work Experience with 28 students taking part in this since February 2014. Schools’ Parliament is looking at ways to make available meaningful Work Experience to students.


Child Sexual Exploitation [CSE] – as with Cyber Sense Schools’ Parliament is supporting a project that will provide a free resource looking at issues around CSE that hopefully will be available by Easter 2016.


Inconsiderate Parking outside of Schools – following unfortunate fatality of child who was knocked down and killed as result of stepping out from between parked cars outside of school at end of school day Schools’ Parliament is much involved with campaign to raise awareness of dangers to children especially in primary schools created by inconsiderate parking outside of school buildings.


EU Referendum – a reason given as to why young people do not vote in elections in UK is that they do not know enough about issues to make a considered decision. This will be even more so when it comes to voting in EU Referendum. Schools’ Parliament aims to raise awareness of all things European to assist young people come to a more considered decision.


It is likely that there might be additions to the above as a result of UKYP’s Make Your Mark Campaign and its sitting in House of Commons in November 2015
