Work as if you lived in the early days of a better nation.”

We are an independent democratic organisation researching and campaigning for progressive regionalism and devolution for the North of England. We want to stimulate new thinking about ways of getting a stronger voice for the North.  

We are inspired by Hannah Mitchell (1872-1956) – an outstanding Northern working class feminist, co-operator and socialist who served as a councillor in Manchester for many years and believed in an inclusive and open approach to politics.

Find out more about us and the Campaign for Northern Democracy that we co-sponsor on this website. To discuss contributing a thinkpiece to the site, contact us here.


We are a democratic member organisation you can join. We rely on donations from supporters to keep going – find out more about membership and donations here.
