Jenny Willott, Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, is calling for local organisations to take part in Parliament Week, an annual programme of events to inspire people across the UK to participate in democratic life.

Parliament Week 2013 begins on 15th November and will see organisations around the country join in a week long programme of activities and events - all designed to inform, inspire and connect people all over the UK with parliamentary democracy.

Part of this year's programme will focus on Women in Democracy - celebrating women's contribution to UK democratic life and exploring how women's voices can be better heard.

Parliament Week is working in partnership with over 200 organisations from across the UK to put together a programme that includes historical walks, art exhibitions, online debates, panel discussions and more. Events can be booked through the Parliament Week website.

Jenny Willott, MP for Cardiff Central: 'Parliament Week is a great opportunity for organisations here in Cardiff to engage their members in this national programme. If your organisation has a story to tell about our democratic history, can play a part in inspiring people to take an active part today or has a role in shaping our democracy in the future, please visit the Parliament Week website for ideas on how you can get involved or to become a Parliament Week partner."

Schools are also invited to take part in Parliament Week, through specially created resources such as debate packs and assembly plans. For more information, please visit the schools page on the Parliament Week website.
