This category contains articles on All-Party Parliamentary Groups in the UK Parliament. There are separate pages on Cross-Party Groups in the Scottish Parliament.

All-party parliamentary groups within the British parliament are regarded as relatively informal groups compared with, for example, select committees of the House. The membership of all-party groups is mainly comprised of backbench Members of the House of Commons and Lords but may also include ministers and non-parliamentarians. Groups flourish and wane according to the interests and enthusiasm of Members.

Groups are classified either as subject groups (relating to a particular topic eg forestry) or country groups (relating to a particular country or region). Most country groups are affiliated to the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association's United Kingdom Branch and/or to the Inter-Parliamentary Union's British Group.
