This year, the policy consultation will focus on two areas – health and international development.
Members are invited to share their views and ideas through our consultation, running until 19th June 2022.
There are a number of ways to get involved – you could attend your local party meeting to discuss the topics and share your collective views, or send your individual answers to us. Resources and support are available to help you convene your meetings online, and you can also learn more at one of our regional conferences happening through the year – where expert speakers will debate these issues with our members.
Your contributions will be collected and considered by the NEC’s policy sub-committee, who use your ideas and feedback to shape policy proposals. These will be brought to the Co-operative Party annual conference in the Autumn for delegates to debate and vote on.
Due to restrictions related to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we anticipate that local party meetings, where the policy process can be discussed and debate, will take place online into the near future.
All the resources you need to hold your meeting online can be found here. We've prepared a guide to using the technology you'll need to organise remotely, and presentations about the topics up for discussion in the Policy Process.
You can either fill out our easy online form to answer the questions individually, or if you are contributing on behalf of a local party you can also upload a Word or PDF document with your collated answers.
Contributions will only be accepted via our online form. Submissions sent by email or post will not be accepted.
There are separate consultations for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Please ensure you submit your response for the correct nation.
