Co-operative Party – Sharing Power & Wealth

Sharing power and wealth

We are the party of the co-operative movement, committed to building a society where power and wealth are shared.

Democratic public ownership of the services and utilities we all rely on. Tackling the housing crisis through co-operative housing. Fans having a say in their sports club. Credit unions as an alternative to rip-off payday lenders. Shops owned by their customers that give back to the community.

Working in partnership with Labour, the Co-operative Party is a voice for co-operative values and principles from local communities up to the places where decisions are taken and laws are made.

We believe in a society and economy driven by values, not profits.

Our vision is of a society and economy in which people's voices are heard; institutions and services are accountable to their users and staff, and ownership and wealth are shared.

We believe that co-operatives values are key to making that ambition a reality. We’re working in partnership with Labour to spark a radical shift in the size of the co-operative sector, and to bring key sectors like transport and utilities into democratic public ownership.

Co-operative elected representatives in Westminster, Holyrood, Cardiff Bay and in local government across the UK are working to put these ideas into practice – and our reach, membership and impact are growing.
