The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Assistive Technology aims to disseminate knowledge, generate debate and facilitate engagement on assistive technology amongst Members of both Houses of Parliament.
The APPG will do this through holding events in Parliament, bringing experts together for roundtable discussions and briefings, contributing to government consultations, and promoting the group and its activities amongst parliamentarians.
The APPGAT is entirely committed to ensuring its activities, membership and funding are entirely transparent. The Group is an official 'All-Party Group', and under no circumstances does the APPGAT endorse, support, lobby for or campaign on behalf of one organisation.
The Group operates according to a strict Code of Governance. The Group is funded through a combination of annual membership fees from its associate (non-parliamentary) members and project based sponsorship for specific research projects. The APPGAT and its work is driven solely by its Parliamentary Officers and Members; as such, the Group's non-parliamentary members do not have voting rights within the Group and cannot dictate its activities. The Group's entry on the official Parliamentary Register of All-Party Groups can be viewed here.
The APPGAT is administered by Policy Connect, a cross-party, non-profit think tank based in Southwark. Policy Connect is entirely committed to upholding the principle of transparency in UK parliamentary and public affairs and welcomes any questions you may have on its work and activities.
