Who We Are  

The IPT is an independent, non-lobbying, non-partisan charity that provides a trusted platform of engagement between Parliament and UK business. The IPT is dually supported by cross-party representation of senior parliamentarians on its Board of Trustees, and through the patronage of its industry supporters. The IPT is non-party political and works with all parliamentarians and businesses of any sector or size.

What We Do

The IPT creates an environment that supports trusted, open and two-way dialogue between Parliament and UK business. IPT platforms engage, educate and inform, create lasting relationships and facilitate the exchange of ideas. Specifically, we aim to:

  • Equip parliamentarians from all parties with a greater understanding of commerce and industry through non-partisan platforms
  • Enable businesses of all sizes and from all sectors to develop knowledge of parliamentary and legislative processes
  • Enrich policy debates by deepening the dialogue between Parliament and industry
  • Support the efficient administration of government through our Civil Service Attachment Scheme
