What's HeadsUp all about?

HeadsUp is an online debating space for under 18s to discuss their views on political issues with their peers and influencial decision-makers.

HeadsUp aims to build young people's levels of political awareness and participation so that they can play an effective role in the democratic processes affecting their lives.

HeadsUp is also a space politicians can use to consult with young people and find out their ideas, experiences and opinions.

HeadsUp IS...

  • About sharing your views on political issues that affect you
  • Finding out about the ideas and experiences of other young people 
  • Getting young people and politicians to talk together
  • Making sure that young people's views are heard by decision-makers and fed into the political process
  • About finding out more about politics
  • Using facts and figures to back up your killer arguments

HeadsUp is NOT...

  • A chatroom
  • Linked to any political party or interest group
  • About ranting on or having a go at people - though not everyone will agree all of the time
