About the Party
The Co-operative Party is the fourth largest political party in Parliament, and the political arm of the Co-operative Movement.
We believe that people will achieve more by working together than they can by working alone. We support the efforts of those who seek success through that co-operative endeavour.
We believe that the only way to create a just and fair society is through power being spread evenly throughout society, and not arbitrarily based on wealth, class, gender or race.
We work to promote co-operatives and all forms of mutual organisation.
We work in partnership with the Labour Party as its sister party to achieve these ends. There are currently 32 Labour Co-operative MPs and representation in the Scottish Parliament, the Welsh Assembly and hundreds of councillors around the country.
