About us

Centre is a think tank and a pressure group advocating for a Nordic-inspired welfare system, free markets and free trade. We have members from across the UK from every party who we work with to create and promote centrist policies. This involves policies and papers on issues where we feel there is a need for new ideas. We then promote these using social media campaigns, petitions and lobbying MP’s.

Our core ideas

A Nordic-inspired welfare system:

A comprehensive welfare system benefits both the individuals using them and businesses who have healthy and educated workers.

Free markets:

Free Markets are the best way to promote economic growth and to generate money.

Free trade:

Free Trade increases competition within the UK and helps poorer countries.

This is a vision for a country that combines a strong welfare state with a free market economy. It is a system that we know works because its been tried and tested in the Nordic countries. This has meant simplifying systems such as social security, how many layers of government we have and our overly complex tax system. We also learnt from them in areas where individual countries have become world leaders. In creating a free market economy that works we have looked to countries such as Sweden and reforming our education system has been based off Finland which has one of the best education systems in the world.
