All-Party Parliamentary Groups

All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal cross-party groups that have no official status within Parliament. They are run by and for Members of the Commons and Lords, though many choose to involve individuals and organisations from outside Parliament in their administration and activities. 


For information about a specific group (eg its membership, publications or meetings) please contact the group itself. The group's contact details are on its entry in the Register of APPGs.

For advice on APPGs in general and the rules governing them please contact the Registry Team in the Office of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards on or 020 7219 0401.
