We meet with our country at a crossroads. People are crying out for a movement that believes in sharing power and wealth. And we’re ready to answer that call with our North West ‘Ideas to change Britain’ members event.

Bringing together members and supporters from across the co-operative, labour and trade union movements, this is a chance to learn more and help shape our plans to build a fairer Britain.

The event will features debates on the Co-operative Party’s Policy Process for 2018: An Economy Where Wealth and Power Are Shared and Britain Leaving the European Union. There will also be sessions on becoming a Co-operative Councillor and building co-operative activism in the North West.

Sandwich lunch is included in the ticket price and the event is open to non-members of the Co-operative Party.
