National organisations

Britain for Europe. is a national voice campaigning for continued UK membership of the European Union. They are a non-party political organisation made up of affiliated local activist groups from across the UK. Their key objective is to ensure that continued membership of the EU be recognised in public debate as a legitimate option for the UK. The majority of the British people want the decision to leave the EU to be reconsidered.

Britain for Europe now have a partnership with the European Movement, Healthier In The EU, Scientists for EU, and Sixteen Million Rising.

The European Movement is an independent, cross-party organisation committed to keeping the UK in the EU. We draw our strength from our members, supporters and volunteers. Our belief is that there is no deal better for our country than full EU membership and our nationwide grassroots network is campaigning to keep the UK at the heart of Europe.

They have a Midlands Branch.

Healthier In The EU is a grassroots campaign that continues to raise the voice of UK health professionals, carers, patients and researcher in the negotiations and policies following the EU referendum. We still believe that full membership of the EU is best for the UK's health care, but is `Brexit means Brexit' then we must fight to work as closely as possible with the EU for effective health policy, data sharing and free movement of health workers and researchers.

Scientists for EU is a campaign by UK scientists to keep the UK in the EU. Science is vital for the UK's economy and quality of life. Science is also at the heart of global, social challenges that face us all. We believe that we can achieve so much more good for the UK and the world from within the EU.

Sixteen Million Rising is the UK's first, grassroots, Pro-European Radio Show. They believe the referendum on June 23rd 2016 should never have been held at all. It was not a decision we were ever going to be able to make, safe in the knowledge we had all the facts. More importantly, they believe the Government's decision to lead us into a disaster they themselves warned us about means they are failing in their duty to us. We're not happy about it. So, we're making some noise! They are certain, along with millions of others, that our future social, economic, fiscal and cultural success depends on the promotion of core values, such as compassion, tolerance, unity and hope. They believe this can best be achieved by retaining our membership of the European Union.

EU in Brum has also worked with Common Ground, who are fighting to pull our country together at a time when other forces are threatening to tear it apart. They are campaigning for a fair and open society - and honest politics. Their main initiative is the Ten Towns Project, a bid to listen to and learn from communities which voted to Leave.

The Coordination Hub is a network of groups in support of Europe, set up in the wake of the UK's vote to leave the EU. They have brought over 100 pro-Europe groups and initiatives together in our mission to build a network that can achieve the best possible outcome for post-referendum Britain.

The Young European Movement was founded in 1972 - before the UK became a member of the EU. We intend to be around for a long time afterwards. We will continue to discuss European issues, spread European messages and strive for cooperation with the continent. So long as we uphold our values, defend our rights and preserve our democracy, we will always be European.

Another Europe is Possible was established to campaign for a radical `in' vote in the EU referendum on 23 June 2016. They said `stay in Europe to change Europe'. They come from across the spectrum of the progressive left, working across party political lines to campaign for democracy, human rights, and social justice. After the bitter disappointment of the referendum result they are continuing our campaign to defend the six progressive elements of EU membership. They identify those as workers' rights, environmental sustainability, the free movement of people, human rights, science and research funding and transnational innovation. They are also fighting for democracy in the Brexit process. That means transparency in the negotiations, and ensuring that corporate interests do not run riot and take over. They are also arguing for a referendum on the terms of exit once they have been negotiated with Europe with an option to remain in the EU if the terms are rejected.

48 And Beyond is an ever-growing campaign group with the clear objective of keeping the United Kingdom within the European Union. They firmly believe that membership of the European Union helps safeguard our rights and freedoms, as well as providing social and economic partnerships that otherwise would be difficult, expensive or impossible. They consider that the UK should only seek the next "best deal" when Remaining is not legally achievable.

Make it Clear. Keep It Complex gives you easy things to do in a difficult world. At the moment it might feel like you've got too many tabs open in your brain: Brexit, Trump, climate change, male violence, cultural hegemony, islamophobia, terrorism, right-wing populism - the list goes on. Keep It Complex is a collaborative and evolving organisation which confronts political issues through ideas and action. It's about using art to have conversations with people you don't usually talk to. It's about not giving in to fear and apathy. They currently have several strands of activity. We work collaboratively to run events, curate workshops, facilitate discussions, create materials, and inspire action. Keep It Complex is about making clear what we want, without simplifying discussion: a peaceful, anti-austerity, factual, transnational, messy, family-friendly, inclusive, inter-generational, generous, diverse society.

Hope Not Hate uses research, education and public engagement to challenge mistrust and racism, and helps to build communities that are inclusive, celebrate shared identities and are resilient to hate.

More United gives you a chance to change the direction of our politics. They use crowdfunding to support political candidates who stand by our values, regardless of their party. In June 2017 they helped elect 34 MPs from across different political parties who agree with their values, changing Britain for the better. Millions of people want to get involved in politics, but don't want to sign up to a particular party. They offer you a way to make a difference by combining the power of thousands to get people who share our values elected, regardless of party. The more people we elect from across all parties, the more voices we will have in Parliament standing up for what we believe in.

Stand Up to UKIP is an umbrella organisation which believes women, trade unions, anti-racists, black, Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Sikh, other faith communities, LGBT, young people, students and all good people, must unite and stand up to UKIP, racism and bigotry. They believe UKIP is a racist party. It is also a party of bigots, sexists, Islamophobes, homophobes and people prejudiced against disabled people. It represents the interests of big business and bankers who caused the economic crisis. It has built up its electoral base by both presenting itself as a party opposed to the European Union, but more importantly by spreading poisonous lies and hatred towards migrants and Muslims.

The New Europeans (don't seem to have a mission statement on their website).

Open Britain is a cross-party, grassroots campaign. They believe: Britain is stronger with Europe. They are fighting against a hard, destructive Brexit.
