The service is accessed by completing the online enquiry form below and is open to Parliamentarians and Civic Leaders (and their assistants) from the; UK Parliament; Northern Ireland Assembly; Scottish Parliament; and Senedd Cymru.
NB: Like Chatham House, UKNCC does NOT offer 'institutional views'.
"UK Parliamentarians and Civic Leaders have limited support in their quest to understand China and its multifaceted interactions with the UK. This Help Desk gives them more options by providing balanced and trusted insight on the positives and negatives of China's development. Sophisicated understanding is vital for the UK not a 'nice to have'."
Frank Slevin, Chairman, UKNCC
"The job of being a UK Parliamentarian or Civic Leader is extraordinarily demanding and wide ranging. This Help Desk is being provided by the UKNCC to give colleagues on-demand and confidential support where they can ask questions and explore issues on a one-to-one basis, free from partisan lobbying or special interest groups. It is simply an excellent initiative."
Sir Malcolm Rifkind, Chairman, UKNCC Advisory Board
"The UKNCC is a nimble, responsive and volunteer led organisation, that is free to address the needs of the UK as it sees them. Unencumbered by convention or funder preferences, the team has looked at what support is available and identified serious gaps that need to be filled.
This Help Desk is an important step towards that goal."
Wendy Alexander, Vice-Chair, UKNCC
