Policy Manager, Assistive Technology

This role includes managing the activity and stakeholder engagement of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Assistive Technology (APPGAT) in support of that objective.

About the APPGAT

The APPGAT is an All-Party Parliamentary Group made up of MPs and Peers dedicated to pursuing the opportunities presented by assistive technology to make society inclusive for all. The group is designed to facilitate discussion between the sector and Parliament and make policy interventions on issues surrounding assistive technology (AT).

The APPG works by holding policy events in Parliament, bringing experts and politicians together for roundtable discussions, symposia, and receptions; we use the findings from these policy events to develop briefings, term papers and research reports with the aim of informing and influencing Parliament, Government and the sector.

As manager of our assistive technology policy work you will have great influence shaping the policy field and work across Policy Connect in developing the direction of the role.
