Local MP Caroline Dinenage is encouraging local schools and community groups to get involved in Parliament Week.
Parliament Week is a programme of events and activities that connect people across the UK with Parliament and democracy; the annual initiative kicks off on Monday 13 November and will run until Friday 17 November.
During Parliament Week 2016, Caroline hosted students from Brune Park in Westminster and visited local schools. In previous years she has hosted debates and Q&A sessions at St Vincent, Bay House and CEMAST.
Speaking ahead of Parliament Week, Caroline said:
"Parliament Week is a great way to engage young people with both politics and Parliament. I always enjoy getting involved with the initiative every year.
It is a fantastic way to ask for young people's their opinions on topics which are big issues in Parliament at the moment."
Parliament Week is co-ordinated by the House of Commons with support from the House of Lords.
