An All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) is an informal group of Members who join together to pursue a particular topic or interest. It is run by and for Members of the Commons and Lords, and many groups involve individuals and organisations from outside Parliament in their administration and activities.

Partners & Parliamentarians

As a non-partisan group, APPG-BBYP welcomes the involvement of diverse perspectives and currently works with official negotiators and cross-party groups. The APPG is Chaired by Stephen Kinnock MP, with several committed Vice-Chairs; Caroline Lucas MP, Anna Soubry MP, Andrew Rosindell MP, Tom Brake MP and Lord Triesman.


The APPG is further supported by 38 parliamentary Members (December 2017)


Achievements To Date

In October 2017 APPG-BBYP launched a major piece of empirical research in partnership with the London School of Economics.


UK Youth Perspective and Priorities for Brexit Negotiations engaged hundreds of UK-wide young people and has initiated relationships with cross-party MPs and Lords, the Department for Exiting the European Union, the European Council Taskforce 50, European Commission, European Parliament and European Youth Forum, and relevant Committees both in the UK and the EU.


Since then we have been working hard on ensuring that our report reaches the right people in the right places.


We will continue to advocate for the recommendations of our report in decision-making processes.


On the 20th November 2018, the APPG-BBYP launched their second report in partnership with the London School of Economics European Institute.


The report, Building Bridges; a Youth Vision for a Common Future after Brexit, engaged over fourteen-hundred 18 to 30 year-olds and aims to gather an insight into the views, concerns and priorities of young people as the end of Article 50 approaches, focusing specifically on UK-EU relations, and how it will affect young people.


We continue to push forward the recommendations from the report to ensure that the voices of young people in the UK and EU are not ignored.
