What is an APPG?
All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party, interest groups of MPs and Peers interested in a particular issue.
APPGs do not have any power to make laws and are not funded by Parliament. There is a great number of APPGs, covering many and diverse fields such as health, education, transport, defence, finance, the media, and sports.
Some APPGs have existed for many decades whereas others come and go in response to issues of the day. The APPG on Autism has been in existence since 2001.
