How do you become a Parliament Week partner?
The process is simple and will only take 5 minutes:
- Check that you’re happy with our terms and conditions
- Complete the online partner sign-up form
- Check your inbox. If you have been successful you will receive an email from the Parliament Week team explaining next steps.
As a potential partner, you could be a charity, an arts organisation, a campaigning organisation, a museum or local government - the list is endless. However you must be an organisation and one that is committed to running an event or activity during Parliament Week.
Why should you become a Parliament Week partner?
Organisations across the UK have a connection with Parliament and democracy. Yours might have a story to tell about our democratic history, play a part in inspiring people to take an active part today, or have a role in shaping our democracy in the future. Whatever your connection is, you are welcome to help us celebrate Parliament Week by applying to become a partner.
As a Parliament Week partner, you will have:
- An opportunity to become part of a growing, nation-wide event, with over 100 other organisations, supported by national media coverage
- Free Parliament Week resources to help you plan your event and for you to distribute to your audiences
- An invitation to our partners’ briefing events where you can meet other partners and share ideas for Parliament Week
- Advice about your event, ideas about how to promote it and link-ups with other partners.
