Who we are

Like you, we are tired of what politics has become.

We have founded The Independent Group to be true to our values – values which have been forgotten by the main political parties.

Our country faces big challenges which urgently need solving. Our aim is to reach across outdated divides and build consensus to meet those challenges. We will make decisions based on evidence - and arrive at them by debating with tolerance and respect. Every member of our group has the right to be heard and the duty to lead.

Forming The Independent Group hasn’t been an easy decision - but it is time to recognise that our politics is broken and needs fundamental change. We are excited to be on this journey with you and with each other.
