All Party Parliamentary Group on Charities and Volunteering
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Charities and Volunteering (formerly the APPG on Civil Society and Volunteering) provides a forum for discussing the issues affecting the voluntary and community sector. NCVO is delighted to provide the secretariat for this group.
This group has no status whilst the House of Commons is dissolved.
While the House of Commons is dissolved, all meetings of the APPG on Charities and Volunteering have been postponed until the election.
Please sign up to our mailing list to be informed once a new timetable of meetings is announced.
How to get involved
We very much welcome attendees from the voluntary sector.
Meetings usually take the form of presentations by speakers and then a Q&A with the floor. However, parliamentarians do have priority in asking questions.
How the group works
Meetings are attended by a range of parliamentarians and members of the voluntary sector. Recent topics have ranged from the role of charities in campaigning to volunteer internships. The APPG also holds a yearly meeting with the Charity Commission and the minister for civil society.
The APPG on Charities and Volunteering is registered with the House of Commons (pdf, 300KB).
