ASPiRES will be taking part in UK Parliament week!!
UK Parliament Week is an annual series of events in the United Kingdom that aim to inspire interest in parliament, politics and democracy and encourage young people and the public to engage with the UK’s democratic system and institutions.
Initiated in 2011, a week-long programme of events and activities is organised each year by the House of Commons and House of Lords of the Parliament of the United Kingdom in collaboration with over 300 organisations including charities, schools, museums and community groups
We have 3 candidates taking part and will run for ASPiRES Prime Minister.They each have to write a manifesto and canvass to the other service users to vote for their party for a week.
The service users will take to the polling stations 13th to 16th and vote for their prime minister. The winner will be announced on 17th.
