Bristol City Youth Council and Youth Mayors

Find out who the Bristol City Youth Council are, and what they do.

Bristol City Youth Council

The Bristol City Youth Council (BCYC) and Bristol Members of the United Kingdom Youth Parliament (UKYP) are an elected group of young people aged 11 to 18. Members are voted for in the Bristol Big Youth Vote. 

We want to make sure children and young people can express their views on the decisions that are important to them and that their opinions are voiced and heard. They can therefore make positive changes in their communities and make a difference to the young people of Bristol.
