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.
Overcoming barriers for charities providing public services
|Date and time||5 July 2016, 16.00–18.00|
|Location||Committee room 18, Houses of Parliament|
We will hear from:
- Kathy Evans, CEO of Children England
- Jocelyn Hillman, founder and CEO of Working Chance
- Cllr Sally Gimson, former cabient member for adult social care and health, Camden Council
- Mark Simms, chief executive of P3
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).
