The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Customer Service raises awareness and understanding of customer service amongst parliamentarians and establishes a dialogue with UK organisations across all sectors.

At our APPG meeting on 18 January 2022, we looked at the growing issue of worker abuse, identifying the huge increase of harassment and hostility across numerous sectors that needed to be addressed. This group has supported further protections for customer service workers from abuse, highlighting the need to continue pushing for a specific offence to protect customer service workers across all sectors.
