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.

Millions of people in the UK are struggling to feed themselves and their families. We're working across the UK to bring attention to the food poverty crisis and deliver food justice.
Say hello to Co-operation Live: every week you can tune in on Wednesday to chat about a wide range of topics – from food justice to fair trade – with expert speakers including MPs, councillors, community leaders and co-operative activists. You can join Co-operation Live using Zoom on your computer or phone: just click "Register now" on the event you wish to join.
As well as our weekly Midweek Meetup for members, as part of Co-operation Live we'll also be holding weekly Councillors' Calls – plus special one-off events for members, party officers and more.
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.
