Parliamentary Outreach

Parliamentary Outreach spreads awareness of the work, processes and relevance of the institution of Parliament, encouraging greater engagement between the public and the House of Commons and House of Lords.

The work of Parliamentary Outreach includes:

  • Delivering free training explaining the work of Parliament

  • Promoting engagement with Select Committee inquiries

  • Showing how the public can get involved with legislative scrutiny

  • Demonstrating Parliament's relevance to each part of the UK

The Parliamentary Outreach service works in partnership with a diverse range of organisations, from local community groups and businesses to national campaign networks and NGOs.
