UK Parliament Week Resource

Check out our fab new resource - all about Parliament!

To celebrate Parliament Week (13 - 19 November), a team of our fantastic volunteers have put together this innovative challenge pack all about Parliament, in conjunction with the team at UK Parliament Week. You can find out more about the work of UK Parliament Week by visiting their website here

The challenge pack, which is suitable for all sections, has lots of different activities under its three main sections: Explore, Engage and Empower. 

Explore: This section will help you to learn about what democracy is and how the UK Parliament is structured.

Engage: This section will help you to understand how you can engage with Parliament and parliamentary democracy

Empower: Put your understanding of democracy to the test and have your voice heard in your own unit. 

What's included? 

When you sign up to take part in our UK Parliament Week Resource, you will be sent a fully printed copy of the challenge, and will be posted the free badges once you've completed the challenge.
