I am pleased to support this year’s UK Parliament Week (12-18 November 2018) and encourage people in Bolton, especially young people and their teachers, to get involved and hold a UK Parliament Week event.
UK Parliament Week is a UK-wide festival that engages people with Parliament and empowers them to get involved. This is a great opportunity for you to explore what the UK Parliament means to you and your community.
You don’t need any prior knowledge about the UK Parliament to get involved. Your event can be big or small, public or private. There’s no limit to how you take part, from holding a debate or mock election, to organising guest speakers or even an online event.
When you register to take part you receive a free UK Parliament Week partner kit with resources to help you run your event including: an activity booklet, a ballot box, bunting, posters, pin badges, a UK Parliament Week placard and a Votes for Women sash!
Whatever group or organisation you belong to, from primary and secondary schools to uniformed organisations, faith organisations or community groups, there is something for everyone in UK Parliament Week. Let your family, friends and colleagues know about it too.
It was really encouraging to see so many local groups take part in Equaliteas this past spring to engage in discussions on the struggle for equality. I hope that people will embrace Parliament week in the same way
