| What we do
The main intention of APGAW is to keep MPs and Peers informed about animal welfare issues and to develop potential legislation that lifts standards. Regular meetings and events provide an opportunity for those with a common interest in animal welfare to meet and debate their views.
Group activities range from informal gatherings such as receptions to formal presentations by organisations at meetings, letter writing, tabling Early Day Motions and Parliamentary Questions. The Group often sets up working groups to investigate and report on areas of concern. APGAW has also in the past organised visits to animal establishments and written and commissioned reports.
