Toby Perkins MP is asking everyone in Chesterfield to get involved with UK Parliament Week 2021. The annual event takes place between 1st and 7th November and aim to engage people from across the UK in the role of MPs, Parliament, and democracy.

This year the focus is how small actions can lead to big changes, encouraging participants to get informed, take action and make an impact on issues they care about. It is a great opportunity to examine what issues are important to you and how you can work with UK Parliament to bring about

change. Community groups, local organisations, and schools in hundreds of constituencies across the United Kingdom have already signed up to be part of the conversation.

Toby said “UK Parliament Week is a great opportunity to learn more about how our democracy works. It is important that people know what happens in our country. For many Westminster can feel remote and far away from Chesterfield but important decisions are made there that effects all of us. It’s great to support the work of UK Parliament Week 2021.”

Last year, almost one million people took part in UK Parliament Week, despite the challenging circumstances caused by Covid-19. Activities were held in every nation and region of the UK, as well as countries all over the world.

Amy Baxter, Head of Education and Engagement at UK Parliament, said: “Every year we are delighted to see so many people take part in UK Parliament Week. It’s a great opportunity to get informed, take action and make an impact in Chesterfield and beyond. Change starts with you and UK Parliament Week is a great way to learn how you can make a difference.”
