APPG Domestic Violence

All-Party Parliamentary Group on Domestic Violence


The House of Commons will dissolve due to the General Election 2017. That means that during the election period, there are no Members of Parliament and the status of All-Party Parliamentary Groups will not exist. We will therefore not be active until after the election period.

The APPG on Domestic Violence is chaired by Jess Phillips MP and provides a forum for discussion on how policy and legislation relating to domestic violence is affecting survivors and specialist support services.
