Carers APPG

First Registered: 30/07/2015 • Last updated on: 15/06/2022

The group will bring together parliamentarians and policy and practice experts, to promote awareness, to share knowledge, and to better understand of the needs of unpaid carers. It will work to improve legislation for carers and provide a forum for parliamentarians and stakeholders to discuss solutions to improve carers’ lives.

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.
