From the Junior Imperial and Constitutional League founded in 1906 to the Young Conservatives rebranded in 2018, youth engagement has been a part of the Conservative Party for more than 100 years. The youth wing has been through many changes over the past few years and it remains a vital part of the Conservative Party.
The Young Conservatives is organised at a local level within Associations. All Party members aged 25 and under are automatically members of the Young Conservatives and are organised into branches within their local Associations. The objective of these branches is to bring people together, organise social events and activities and campaign for Conservatives both locally and nationally.
Horsham YC is the Party's movement for under 26s, including all members of the Conservative Party of this age. YC is the largest youth political organisation in the UK. The group is chaired by Miles Jordan and is very active within Horsham Conservative Association.
Regular events are organised from 'Pizza and Politics', curry nights and drinks evenings.
On the campaigning side, YCs take part in our local activities to raise awareness of this issues, garner support and gauge local opinion from the public on the things that matter to them.
The organisation focuses on involving young people in politics and addressing the issues that matter to them.
With over 15,000 members across the country, YC runs a range of events and activities, from policy discussions to social gatherings.
Members also have the opportunity to get involved in campaign activity – supporting and standing as Conservative candidates in elections at all levels, from student politics to Westminster.
