South Tyneside's Young People's Parliament (STYPP)

South Tyneside Young People's Parliament (STYPP) is fun, informal and a great way to meet new people and make a difference.

Who we are

We are young people from across South Tyneside, aged 13 to 19 years old.

What we do

We discuss issues that affect young people living in South Tyneside and come up with ways to help.

Each year we run a campaign, our campaign for 2020 is climate change.

We meet 3 Tuesdays each month, from 6 to 8pm, at 25-27 Market Place, South Shields.
