This training session is designed for those in the voluntary and community sector who would like an in-depth look at how to engage with the Westminster Parliament. It is open to those who are new to lobbying and campaigning as well as those who would like a refresher in this area.

Providing attendees with the context on how policy and legislation is produced in Westminster, the session will further help you to understand how to effectively plan and implement a lobbying and campaigning strategy.

The training session will discuss:

  • Introduction to Parliament: Contacting MPs / Peers (Lords)

  • Public Bill Committee evidence submissions
  • Role of Select Committees and evidence submission

The session will be provided by Fiona Payne, Senior Education and Engagement Officer (NI) at Westminster.
