Over the summer of 2020 the National Policy Forum (NPF) ran a consultation engaging all parts of our Party in a discussion on how to re-shape our policy platform.
Each of the eight NPF policy commissions published a policy document as part of the consultation, all relating to how we can re-build our country once the pandemic has passed.
Read the documents below:
As part of the consultation we ran a programme of eight online policy roundtables, one per topic. We were overwhelmed by the response from Labour members to these events, with over 10,000 expressing an interest in attending. We were delighted that at least one member of the Shadow Cabinet attended each event to hear directly from members about their policy priorities post-coronavirus.
The consultation closed in July 2020 and we received a record number of submissions. Thank you to all members, stakeholders and affiliates who engaged in the consultation and took the time to share your insights.
The findings of this consultation, and the work of the NPF throughout 2020, were then written up into eight interim reports, one per policy commission. These were published in lieu of the usual NPF Annual Report which, due to the pandemic, could not be taken to Annual Conference and debated on Conference floor as per the normal process.
Read the interim reports here:
Each report laid out a set of grounding principles to shape our policy platform, and we asked members, supporters and affiliates to send in their views on these principles.
The findings of the 2021 NPF Consultation, alongside the updated interim reports, informed the 2021 NPF Annual Report. This was taken to Annual Conference in September 2021 where it was passed by delegates.
Don't worry if you missed out on engaging with the process through 2020 - we want to hear your views on our *new* consultation launched in May 2022. Find out more about the 2022 NPF Consultation and how you can get involved here.
