Welcome to Labour's online home of policy development and ideas, where you can take part in our open and democratic policy-making process. Whether you're a Labour Party member or not, we want to hear your ideas on how the next Labour government should tackle the challenges our country faces, and build a more equal and prosperous Britain.
Labour Party policy is made democratically, through discussion and consultation with members, the public, businesses, experts and civil society groups. You can use this website to take part too. Join discussions with politicians and representatives from across the Labour Party, share your ideas with us, and help us build a more equal and prosperous Britain.
You can see some of the topics we’re currently discussing below.
