Some of our current and former MPs started their successful quests for a seat in Parliament at a FWMPs Weekend and so could you! So, whether you’re already an approved candidate or are yet to take that initial first step, this is the perfect way to boost your journey to Westminster.
Previous attendees have described the weekend as “invaluable”, “dynamic” and “some of the best party training I have experienced’’.
