APPG officer roles

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.

Officer Roles are drawn from the latest edition of the Register of APPGs. To see the latest edition of the register, go to Published Register of APPGs.
