Official Page

To recognise the important contribution that the Alevi community makes to British society; to ensure that British Alevis are represented in Parliament by giving them a platform to express their legitimate socio-political aspirations, so they achieve recognition for their rights and religion in Britain and overseas.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
