Change Politics is a grassroots website with the goal of supporting and advancing
the aims and objectives of The Independent Group.

Your donations are needed to support us in the day-to-day running of the site. We don’t receive funding from TIG directly, but we believe passionately that TIG supporters should have a space to discuss their ideas.

All donations will go directly to Change Politics Ltd, a not for profit company run by volunteers.

Change Politics was formed in February 2019, in response to the failures of the established, main political parties. Driven by a desire to advance the outdated way Britain does politics, we at Change Politics have set off on a mission to explore progressive, left of centre thinking - with the aim of promoting a moderate, civil and balanced way forward.

Our site provides news, views and comments for supporters of Change UK or more broadly, modern thinkers, who believe that now is the right time to rethink the way we do politics in the U.K.

If you too believe it’s time for a bold conversation about how to fix our broken political system, you can join in by subscribing to our newsletters or submitting an article.

Together we can #ChangePolitics
