What is the CPF?
The CPF gives you a unique opportunity to discuss your ideas with others and have them considered when policy is being developed and included in the plans of our Government.
What does our CPF do?
The CPF is a national structure that provides the opportunity for us to discuss topics locally and submit briefing papers which will be used in the development of party policy.
We all have had thoughts and ideas about what we would do if we were running the country. The Conservative Policy Forums give you the opportunity to put forward your ideas, discuss them with others and possibly even have them adopted as party policy. You will explore your ideas and those of others in an informal atmosphere where all ideas are respected and given due consideration. The group leader will then submit a briefing paper for consideration by the team who develop future policy.
Everyone is welcome. All we ask is that you are respectful of the views of others.

Our local meetings will be publicised on our events page so if you are interested in attending please take a look to find details of the next discussion group and just come along.
What does Conservative Party HQ have to say about the CPF
"We want to give our members the chance to have a say in the writing of the next manifesto. To this end, we produce nine discussion briefs a year on a number of subjects from ‘Natural Resources’ to ‘Where will growth come from’. Local groups then meet to discuss these topics, and to send their response back to Central Office, where the professional team write a summary of the responses received. This is then sent to the relevant Minister for consideration, who responds in due course."
