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, nearly 3500 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.

Registration for our peer support circles is open!

Are you considering standing for election, but looking to plan your pathway to politics more deeply? Our Peer Support Circles, facilitated by Happen Together CIC, might be a great fit for you. Delivered online with cross-party peers, our 6-session journey provides a safe and ambitious space for you to connect with others and explore your path to politics.

Scotland’s Women Stand

On Saturday 7th September we gathered 400 women for a dynamic day at the Scottish Parliament, to explore their paths to elected office and participation in democracy. Women of all ages, backgrounds and political affiliations, attend a day full of inspiration, information and motivation, to explore their political purpose and path, and be a part of positive change towards the goal of gender equal political representation.

We are thrilled to have worked on Scotland’s Women Stand in partnership with the Scottish Parliament funded by the Scottish Government.

Upcoming Workshops….
