| What we do
The main intention of APGAW is to keep MPs and Peers informed about animal welfare issues and to develop policy that lifts standards. Regular meetings and events provide an opportunity for cross party MPs and Lords with an interest in animal welfare to meet and debate their views. We run one or two formal inquiries each year on a topical issue to gather evidence from stakeholders, identify problems threatening animal welfare and produce recommendations that set out the pathway to solving the problems.
We work alongside the expertise of bodies such as the RSPCA, British Veterinary Association, Animal Health & Welfare Board England, National Farmers Union and World Horse Welfare to ensure all of our work is evidence based and robust.
