The Parliament Project

The Parliament Project is a non-partisan project to inspire, empower and encourage women to run for political office in the UK. Focusing on practical, hands-on training and support, we run workshops and webinars to demystify the process for women wanting to get involved in politics and online peer support circles to support women's political ambitions more deeply. Active across England and Scotland, over 2,200 women have attended our workshops in the last 2 years. We are creating a groundswell of women entering political parties to ultimately achieve 51% female representation in all spheres of politics. 



We are currently planning our 2019 workshops for the following locations: Bath, Birmingham, Brighton, Castlebay, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Lincoln, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Newton Stewart, Portsmouth, Sheffield, Stornoway, Uist. Our Spring Programme will be announced in early January. Sign up to the newsletter to hear when they are announced.


Our popular peer circles are returning in January 2019. A 6-session journey with cross-party peers creating a practical, safe & ambitious space for you to connect with others & explore & plan your pathway to politics. Delivered online using video-conference our 1 hour peer circle sessions create a deliberate & intentional space for your individual personal & political growth, using the power of coaching, reflection & peer connection that has had lasting impact.



A collaboration between The Parliament Project and The Young Women’s Movement, #ScotWomenStand is a 10 month campaign aimed at providing women with tools, information and inspiration to support their political journey.
