National Voluntary Organisations

Our National Voluntary Organisations partners are crucial to the work we do to advocate for and improve the lives of young people across Scotland.

Alongside our MSYPs who represent Scotland’s 73 constituences, we also have MSYPs representing a number of voluntary organisations.

Voluntary organisations are national organisations who work with young people across Scotland. Our voluntary organisation partners have committed to supporting two MSYPs to represent their members within the work of the Scottish Youth Parliament. They help to make sure the views of young people from seldom heard groups are heard by decision makers.

Our current national voluntary organisation partners are:

The Boys’ Brigade

We are always looking to increase the number of our national voluntary organisation members, to ensure we continue to represent the views of as broad a cross-section of young people in Scotland.
