NCVO's meetings with MPs and peers

We routinely meet with members of parliament and the civil service as part of our work championing the voluntary sector.

In the interests of transparency, we publish a register of meetings at which NCVO business is discussed with:

  • ministers
  • MPs and peers
  • permanent secretaries, director generals or equivalent
  • special advisors.

We also publish details of phone calls with the above if they are substantive discussions. We update the register on a quarterly basis.

If you have questions or feedback about the register, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
