Liverpool Schools’ Parliament is an official Committee of Liverpool City Council and has been meeting since March 2001.
Schools in Liverpool, and sometimes beyond the city boundaries, are invited to send children and young people to its meetings and other events. These can be from Year 3 and above. LSP meets each half term as Lower House for those of primary school age and Upper House for those aged 11+ in Liverpool Town Hall
Over the years LSP has made much impact but main success has been the introduction of MY Ticket for those aged 5-18 living in Merseyside and Halton. This gives unlimited daily travel around the 6 boroughs for the cost of £2.20.
If your school would like to participate then please contact Jeff Dunn at firstname.lastname@example.org
