About More United

More United is transforming British politics to make it fit for the 21st century. We bring together MPs from different parties who agree with our values to run campaigns on issues they agree on, using their influence in Parliament to deliver change. At the same time, we empower thousands of people to take action online and offline in support of those campaigns, applying public pressure, volunteering and donating.

In this way, people have a bigger voice and are able to make an impact without having to sign up to the party system.

While commentators wring their hands and wonder whether politics can be fixed, we are actually doing it. At More United, you will join a team creating the blueprint for a new way to do politics that empowers people to make Britain more hopeful, positive and forward thinking.

Since launch, we’ve recruited more than 130k supporters, raised more than £500k and built relationships with more than 80 MPs from five different parties.

Now we have big plans to scale and that’s where you come in.
