Book your place

Please join us for the next meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on charities and volunteering.

Volunteers have been at the heart of the response to covid-19, from community-led action to large-scale organised volunteering. At this meeting will look at how we can ensure this positive action can be maintained in the future.

We will hear from a range of speakers who have been at the heart of this work and discuss what needs to happen to ensure we harness the experience of voluntary and community action during this crisis. What have been the strengths of formal and informal volunteering during the pandemic? How can we ensure that this voluntary effort achieves the greatest impact?

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 and A with the floor. However, parliamentarians do have priority in asking questions.
