Cross Party Group on Children and Young People

YouthLink Scotland and Children in Scotland are the joint secretariat for the Cross Party Group on Children and Young People. Both our organisations are committed to making sure the priorities and the issues affecting children and young people’s organisations are heard and listened to within the parliament.

MSPs involved

Each Cross Party Group has MSPs who are co-convenors of the group. They take it in turns to chair the meeting, choose the topics and decide on what the group should do about particular issues. This means they make a lot of the decisions about the group.

MSPs members 

All Cross Party Groups also have what is called a secretariat. This is an organisation or person who organises the group’s meetings. Children in Scotland and YouthLink Scotland do this for the Cross Party Group on Children and Young People.
