We play a vital role in the development of policy and guidance, producing regular submissions to the UK Government, engaging with officials and Ministers, as well as publishing reports and consultation responses which review and respond to recent policy proposals.

CILT public policy is solely lead and developed by our members, who collaborate within a number of policy groups.

We are always seeking fresh volunteers who relish the opportunity to lead our work.
