Outreach visits

Mr Speaker works closely with the Houses of Parliament's Outreach Service to promote the work and role of Parliament, and to encourage greater public engagement.

The Speaker and the Deputy Speakers visit a range of groups around the UK, including colleges and universities, legal, media and business networks and voluntary organisations. They discuss the work of Parliament and how it can be made more accessible, and highlight existing opportunities for people to get involved.

This work is carried out as part of a Parliament-wide programme of public engagement.
