All-Party Parliamentary Group on Charities and Volunteering (APPG)

A forum for discussing the issues affecting the voluntary and community sector.

APPG 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.

We very much welcome attendees from the voluntary sector.

Meetings usually take the form of presentations by speakers and then a question-and-answer session with the floor. However, parliamentarians do have priority in asking questions.
