Somerset UK Youth Parliament consists of three elected members and their deputies who represent Somerset at the national UK Youth Parliament. They are elected through schools, colleges and youth clubs across Somerset every two years.

They are supported by an advisory group of self-selected young people aged 11 to 18 from all backgrounds. They bring a range of experiences, opinions and abilities, which makes the group interesting, strong, fun and better able to represent others. Group members take part in consultations, decision making, commissioning and grant giving, as well as campaigning on their chosen manifestos. Somerset UK Youth Parliament is supported by Somerset Council’s Youth and Community Service.
