| About APGAW

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Animal Welfare brings MPs and Lords together to undertake evidence based inquiries to produce policy that provides solutions to welfare issues.  

The APGAW is formed of an Advisory Body which includes the cross-party politicians alongside animal welfare experts. The Board sets the work agenda each year and reviews it at the end of the year. In-between that time members of the Group carry out inquiries into the chosen topics bringing in wider APGAW membership which includes NGOs, vets, industry and academics.  The inquiries take the form of roundtables with witnesses attending to answer questions and written evidence is sought too. The sessions are usually closed but individuals with an interest are often welcomed and minutes are taken.

APGAW is always open to receiving input and welcomes suggestions for work streams and meeting topics. The Group also holds drop in surgery sessions for its members to discuss areas of particular concern or animal welfare campaigns for which they need support. APGAW holds receptions in Parliament to raise the profile of campaigns and work on behalf of its members.

Outside of formal events, APGAW officers raise animal welfare in the House of Commons and House of Lords through Parliamentary Questions, debates, meetings with Ministers and Select Committees
