YOUNG people in Warrington can now cast their votes to decide what issues will be debated by members of the Youth Parliament.

Last year, nearly 500,000 young people across the country had their say in what the UK Youth Parliament’s national campaigns would be with 2,285 young people from Warrington taking part.
