Unlike MPs, who receive state funding, members of the House of Lords don’t receive financial support to employ staff.
We are only two Greens in the House of Lords, covering as many issues as we can. We need staff to help us with research and press work. We have a small, part time team who are partly paid for from donations from people like you.
Staff working with us behind the scenes help comb through vast amounts of complex Bills and give us the detailed information we need to contribute to debates and propose amendments.
We regularly question the government but we need staff to help draft these questions and to liaise with the NGOs and friendly lawyers.
Without staff support we can’t respond to all the emails and letters we get from the public or ensure we follow up on Parliamentary questions or debates.
We are the only two Greens in the House of Lords, two of only three Green voices in Parliament at this critical time for our planet, please support our work by helping fund our office. Any amount is useful and appreciated but regular donations allow us to plan ahead so please consider setting up a standing order.
