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.
