The national campaign will engage people on Renew’s agenda – revitalising British towns and cities, creating more educational and job opportunities, boosting strained public services and infrastructure and supporting business, technological innovation and cutting-edge environmental policies. Renew believes the EU referendum was a wake up call that we are a nation divided with mass discontent at inequality & regional, social and generational differences.

Background: Renew is a registered political party set up by a group of independent candidates who stood in the June election 2017 on a campaign to Rethink Brexit, Renew Britain. Building on mass disaffection with existing political parties, Renew has enjoyed overwhelming support for its centrist agenda to address inequality and create a new vision for modern Britain – from a position of strength as a full EU member. So far, the party has recruited some 300 candidates from outside politics – including health workers, teachers, economists, public sector workers, working mothers, students, retirees – all committed to representing their communities & setting the UK on a different course. Renew aims to recruit and train 650 credible candidates for any future election and will campaign to Remain in the EU in any vote on the final deal.
