All-Party Parliamentary Group for Health in All Policies

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Health in All Policies is chaired by Debbie Abrahams MP for Oldham East & Saddleworth.

The purpose of the group is to consider the effects of national public policy on the health of UK populations – particularly on health inequalities between different population groups; to provide a discussion forum for parliamentarians; and to act as a source of well-evidenced and independent information on key social and public health issues.

The last AGM was held on 22 January 2019 in Room M, Portcullis House, at which the officers for the group were elected.

Minutes of meetings are available here.

Public Matters provides the Secretariat to the APPG.

APPG Health in All Policies Inquiry 2019 – 3 Years On: Assessing the Impact of the Welfare Reform & Work Act 2016 on Children and Disabled Adults.

In 2015, the APPG for Health in All Policies undertook an assessment of the prospective impacts of the Welfare Reform and Work Bill on child poverty and health.

The approach taken was to establish perceptions of the relationship between poverty, inequality and health, and then to drill down into the potential impacts that the different measures of the Bill could have specifically on child poverty and subsequently child health and health inequalities.

You can read the Inquiry’s report here.

Three years on, the APPG for Health in All Policies is conducting a follow-up review of the actual impacts of the Welfare Reform and Work Act (WR&WA) 2016.

The deadline for submissions has now closed. If you would still like to send a response please email appg@publicmatters.org.uk.
