The APPG is committed to helping every child to be a confident communicator and find their voice, in order to succeed in school and life beyond. It aims to coordinate research, promote best practice and encourage the overarching principles of oracy in education and society at large.

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.
