Who can attend?
This event is only open to MYPs and their support worker(s). If an MYP is unable to attend, then a deputy can be nominated from the elected youth council/forum/parliament, to attend in their place.

What time does the conference start and finish?
Registration will be open from 11am – 2pm Friday 2nd August. The programme will finish no later than 2pm on Sunday 4th August.

How much will it cost?
Tickets are £315 per delegate. This is a fixed price for both MYPs and support workers.

Where will I be sleeping?
Accommodation is in a blocks of university halls close to the buildings we'll be using for the weekend. The blocks are called 'Storm Jameson Court' and they are on the main campus. All rooms are single occupancy ensuite rooms.

We will try as hard as possible to:

  • Have male and female only floors
  • Keep youth workers close to their young people
  • Reserve accessible rooms for those who need them

Rooms are single occupancy with ensuite bathrooms.

We always endeavour to ensure that Local Authorities are together in the blocks and that blocks are allocated by region, too.

Is food and drink included?
YES, full catering from Friday lunch until Sunday lunch is included in the ticket price.

What's on the programme?
A full programme will be available in due course, if you have any questions about the content of the conference, please do not hesitate to contact events@byc.org.uk.

When do I need to register by?
Registration will close on Friday 29 June 2019 at midday.

Invoicing
All invoices will be issued by Friday 13 July and must be paid before the Annual Conference.

Can I buy extra spaces at UK Youth Parliament Annual Conference?
Unfortunately no, you may only bring your nominated MYP(s) and up to two workers per authority. If you need to bring additional workers, please contact events@byc.org.uk as soon as possible.

Can I register spaces now even if I do not know the names of the young people attending?
YES - providing that you provide us with the names by Friday 29 June 2019 at midday. Please put ‘Young Person’ in the name space if you are unsure of the names of participants. We will need this information to complete the rooming list; a hefty task!

Cancellation Policy
BYC will be enforcing a strict cancellation policy, any cancellations received after Friday 29 June 2019 at midday or any no-shows on the day will be charged the full delegation amount. You will need to read and accept the full cancellation policy during the registration process.

They will be able to request offers of help from other Local Authorities for additional duty of care responsibilities for your MYP(s).
