Passport to parliament

Passport to Parliament is an outreach project empowering looked after children and care leavers to be agents of change - in their own lives and within the care system. We aim to strengthen the participants’ confidence and sense of empowerment, connect them to decision makers and to a wider community of care-experienced young people facing similar issues.

Daniel is 16 and has been in care for 12 years. He said: "Passport to Parliament gives young people in care a chance to get their views across to the people who matter. It’s fantastic to know that I can contribute and campaign for the changes to the care system that count – the changes that children and young people want to see."
Get informed

The best people to identify what needs changing in the care system are those who experience it. Our interactive sessions will use the UK’s rich history of activism to inspire young people to become change makers. We will get together, get active and get stuff done.

Get connected

Politics pays people’s wages. Politics cleans the streets. Politics educates, rewards and punishes. Politics gives ordinary citizens a voice… doesn’t it? We want to use politics to strengthen the voices of the least empowered or socially excluded young people with experience of the care system, aged 12-25.

Get involved

We want to show young people that writing to their MP is just one of many ways to participate in politics. We’ll come to you. If you work with a group of young people who might gain from this opportunity, please get in touch!
