The Conservative Party is a voluntary organisation with many members offering their spare time to organise and campaign for the Party. Volunteers run their local Associations and donate many thousands of hours of their time to help the Party. They campaign all year round, delivering leaflets, surveying and contacting voters in their local area. Our volunteers also raise money to run the Party across the country, to help strengthen Conservative voices across the United Kingdom.
The Conservative Party, in addition to its memberships, contains a number of Recognised Organisations. These groups are responsible for representing specific sections of the Conservative Party and have special recognition in the Conservative Party Constitution. Currently, the Recognised Organisations of the Conservative Party are as follows:
The Young Conservatives are organised at a local level within Associations. All Party members aged 25 and under are automatically members of the Young Conservatives and are organised into branches within their local Associations. Find out more.
The Conservative Women’s Organisation works for the women members of the Conservative Party, to represent their views to the Party Leader, Chairman and MPs. The CWO provides training, mentoring and speaking opportunities, and supports women who wish to become involved at all levels of public life and in their local community. Find out more.
Conservatives Abroad is the global network of the Conservative Party for members and supporters living permanently or temporarily abroad. Conservatives Abroad has members and branches across the world, including Europe, Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Australasia. Find out more.
The Conservative Policy Forum enables members to contribute directly to the Party’s policy-making. All Party members are automatically members of the CPF and every Association or Federation should have an active CPF discussion group. Find out more.
The Conservative Party works to facilitate conversation between ourselves and different communities, to make sure everyone is represented. That includes industry experts, faith groups, diaspora communities, and more.
Our link or affiliate group network is home to many of these groups. They play an important role in strengthening the ties between our Party and communities across the United Kingdom.
