Scottish Youth Parliament

Carers Trust Scotland supports two Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament (MSYPs) who represent young carers and young adult carers, aged 12 – 25, across Scotland. 

MSYPs are democratically elected every two years. Throughout their term, they will consult with their constituents on key issues, take part in national campaigning activities, sit on Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) Committees and attend three National Sittings per year.
