About All-Party Groups

All-party groups (APPGs) are unofficial groups within the Houses of Parliament and have a membership of backbench Members of the House of Commons and Peers. They cover a range of subjects, which are generally of interest to Members from all parties and vary in size and the activity they are involved in. It allows Members to work constructively with others from different political persuasions on an issue of common interest. Members have the opportunity to hold meetings and raise awareness of a particular subject and can exert pressure on ministers who are often invited to attend meetings.
