for you to discuss important political issues every week
HeadsUp is a moderated, online space for under 18s to debate the political issues important to them. Young people share viewpoints with their peers and decision-makers up and down the country.
Through the forums, HeadsUp develops young people's political awareness and promotes active citizenship so they can play an effective part in the democratic processes that affect them.
HeadsUp enables politicians to consult with young people, to find out their ideas, experiences and opinions. There is ample background information to prepare students for debates as well as teachers’ notes and activities.
The site is run by the cross party, independent and politically neutral Hansard Society.
What happens after the results of your debates were passed on to the politicians and government ministers?
HeadsOn (the orange bit) is the place to get a hold of all the latest forum feedback and reports.
