The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Equipment for Disabled Children

“What is an All-Party Parliamentary Group?

 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.


What is The APPG on Equipment for Disabled Children?

The APPG on Equipment for Disabled Children was established on 10th March 2020. The aim of the group is to remove barriers that prevent disabled and terminally ill children from receiving the right equipment at the right time.

We will work across Parliament and with health and social care professionals, decision-makers and families to inform policy at both national and local level and shine a light on best practice.
