Register of All-Party Parliamentary Groups

All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal cross-party groups that have no official status within Parliament. An APPG is an informal group of Members who join together to pursue a particular topic or interest. It is essentially run by and for Members of the Commons and Lords, although many groups involve individuals and organisations from outside Parliament in their administration and activities.

APPGs that were on the Register published on  2 May 2017 retain their status as registered groups until 15 September 2017, but lose this status if they have not registered anew by that date. 

The first Register of APPGs for the new Parliament will be published in early October 2017.

For further information on APPGs (including the Guide to the Rules on APPGs and the Registration Form for APPGs), please visit the APPG page.
