Vote in the Scottish Youth Parliament

Who Cares? Scotland is a partner of the Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) with two seats for Care Experienced members as MSYPs. Although other local authority MSYPs may also have experience of care, these two seats ensure that Care Experienced young people are always represented in the biggest youth forum in Scotland.
