Each All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) is required by the official rules to have a set of Officers who are Members of either the House of Commons or the House of Lords. Royal Public Affairs currently provides the secretariat for two such Groups. They are the APPG on Energy Costs and the APPG on a Fit and Healthy Childhood. For details, please see the separate pages for each Group.
The secretariat does the work of organising meetings and such other activities as the Group decides to undertake. This may include, for instance, the establishment of Working Groups in order to produce reports on topics of interest.
Groups with an ambitious programme need to be funded. Many Groups are funded by a single substantial organisation who provide staff to the APPG. We prefer to have a broader base of interested parties and so request a modest annual fee. If you are interested in supporting either of these Groups please email Phil for further details.
For the avoidance of all doubt, may we re-assure you that no politician has asked for, or been offered, any payment of any kind.
