Workshops and presentations we offer for your organisation

The UK Parliament offers workshops and presentations on how to get your voice heard on the issues that matter most to you.

We take Parliament beyond Westminster - our outreach officers will visit your location in all regions and nations of the UK.

You can learn the basics of how to get your voice heard with our introduction to the UK Parliament or develop expert campaigner skills with a more detailed workshop.

Find out how to influence MPs and members of the House of Lords and discover the many different ways you can take part in the important conversations going on in Parliament!

Sessions for everyone

These sessions are for all sorts of community organisations, including housing associations, tenants and resident groups, voluntary organisations, faith groups, youth groups, sports groups, co-ops, social enterprises and many more.

Whether you are concerned with housing, education, the environment or something else, tell us what your community wants from your session. Our exciting new resources will let your group focus on the topics and issues that matter to them, and include activities, puzzles, quizzes, debates and discussions.

Everyone's voice should be heard

If you are part of a group of people that are underrepresented in Parliament, we are particularly keen to support you. For example, we offer sessions for women and women's groups, adults with learning disabilities (ALD), young people, black and ethnic minorities and the long-term unemployed. We also provide Welsh language sessions for Welsh speakers. 

It is also possible to tailor the sessions depending upon the requirements of your audience. To find out more, contact your Community Outreach and Engagement Officer.
