The Public Affairs Guide to Wales is the essential handbook for organisations seeking to effectively and ethically lobby the Welsh Government and the Welsh Parliament (Senedd Cymru), and is packed with invaluable advice on devising public affairs strategies and campaigns that achieve success on a limited budget.

Daran Hill’s step-by-step guide – for private, public and third sector organisations – expertly strips away the mysteries and misconceptions of engaging with the Welsh Government, Opposition parties, as well as with individual AMs, committees and the civil service, and will empower campaigners to maximise their influence and to ensure their voice is heard by comprehensively explaining how to:

develop an effective public affairs strategy
identify the correct policy and legislative context via effective monitoring and by developing good relations with key policy makers 
fully engage with the legislative processes in the Senedd
influence Senedd committees and cross-party groups
create, organise and undertake a public affairs programme most appropriate for your organisation including hosting parliamentary receptions, attending party conferences, working with the media and joint-working with partner organisations.
