The Co-operative Party is the political arm of the Co-operative Movement, the fourth largest party in Westminster with five Members of the Scottish Parliament.
We believe that people will achieve more by working together than they can by working alone. We support the efforts of those who seek success through that co-operative endeavour.
We believe that the only way to create a just and fair society is through power being spread evenly throughout society, and not arbitrarily based on wealth, class, gender or race.
We work to promote co-operatives and all forms of mutual organisation.
We work in partnership with the Labour Party as its sister party to achieve these ends. In addition to our representation in the Scottish Parliament, there are five Labour Co-operative Scottish Members of Parliament and many councillors.
