The issues facing our members are not limited to a specific workspace or employer. Some challenges exist across a city or region or across the country. One of the best ways of addressing these issues is through policy.
We work with MPs and Peers across the political spectrum, with local governments and national governments in Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. We campaign and lobby for employment and equality rights, copyright reform and a halt to arts cuts. We brief MPs, ministers, civil servants, mayors and other decision-makers, we prepare consultation responses, ask Parliamentary questions, and host a number of Parliamentary events each year.
We co-founded the Performers’ Alliance All-Party Parliamentary Group with the Musicians’ Union and Writers’ Guild of Great Britain. Together, we seek structural change to improve conditions for performers, creatives and writers.
