We believe that things work best when ordinary people have a voice, and when services are accountable to the people who use them.
As the political party of the co-operative movement, we work in partnership with the Labour Party to achieve these aims. There are 31 joint Labour & Co-operative MPs in Parliament, as well as representatives in Scotland, Wales and local government across the UK. Together, we’re ensuring that co-operative and mutual values are at the heart of politics.
