Join the Library Team for a short session to learn how the Library can support your work. These sessions are ideal for those who have recently started working for a Member or if you simply want a refresher in how to use Library resources.
The resources they cover will help you in your policy, research and casework.
By the end of the session you will be able to:
Find and use key Library products including briefing papers, casework articles and data dashboards.
Keep up to date with the latest research and developments through our email alerts
Know how to use the Library request service
Access our online services such as Nexis news and Grantfinder
The sessions are delivered over MS Teams by Library colleagues who all have extensive experience of working with Members and their staff.
The House of Commons Library has produced a new guide for MPs and their staff to help them to assist their constituents: ‘A short guide to tenants’ rights when living in damp and mouldy homes and Government action to address this issue.’
The House of Commons Library has produced a briefing on help with energy bills for businesses, voluntary sector and public sector organisations.
This briefing provides information on support with energy bills for non-domestic customers, including businesses, public sector organisations and charities. It covers help with rising energy prices, and support to install energy-saving measures and low carbon technologies.
Other sources that answer frequent questions are provided, as well as links to other Library briefings, which cover some of the schemes in more detail. Where complex issues are raised it may be more appropriate to refer constituents to specialist bodies and organisations or to a solicitor if legal advice is sought.
Grantfinder gives access to a flexibly searchable and continuously updated database of UK and European Union (EU) funding sources, including grants, loans and advisory schemes. It enables you to set up alerts for new sources of funding in the areas most relevant.
This hour-long session is for those who need a full introduction to what Grantfinder is and how it works. Book your place via Act.
