The future of the left since 1884

Member policy groups

Fabian member policy groups are member-led networks that explore policy issues in detail


If you have experience, expertise or an interest in developing policy debate, then please join one of our member policy groups. As the UK’s only member-led think tank, we want our members to have an active role in developing policy and political ideas to shape the future of the left.

Member policy groups set their own programmes and priorities. Existing groups hold private policy discussions, publish articles and host public events. Policy groups give members the opportunity to create real impact.

  • Economic and business policy
  • Environment and transport
  • Home affairs
  • Law and constitution
  • Local government
  • Science and technology
  • Socialist and Fabian history
