The North East Parliamentary Outreach service aims to create awareness of the work of Parliament and show how the debates and decisions of the House of Commons and House of Lords are relevant to the region.
The Parliamentary Outreach service also promotes engagement with the processes of Parliament, demonstrating how the public can get involved at a local and national level.
Working with Parliamentary Outreach
In partnership with organisations such as Skillshare North East, Federation of Small Businesses, Voluntary Organisations' Network North East and Barnardo's, Parliamentary Outreach in the North East organises and participates in free training sessions, events and exhibitions.
