Back in April and May, when More United's members voted on which candidates to back in the General Election, an eagerness for working across party lines was one of the main criteria in that selection process. More United helped 34 of those candidates get elected and in the months since, these MPs have demonstrated that for them cross-party collaboration is not just a lofty intention. It's a fundamental principle that they are putting into practice at every opportunity.

A massive thank you to everyone who donated to More United's end of year crowdfund! You helped us raise a staggering £97,571.
That means we're heading into 2018 armed with incredible resources to get campaigning on the issues you care about. In the coming weeks we'll be asking for the input of More United's members to help choose what that money should be spent on. Watch this space for more information very soon...
In the meantime, happy new year from the More United team!
One year on from More United's official launch, we're launching a new crowdfund to help kickstart the next phase of this movement.
