We are happy to partner with a range of organisations on projects that fit with our wider agenda. The following are the main ways we work with our sponsoring partners:

Events. We host public panel events, keynote speeches and invite-only roundtable discussions with senior politicians and opinion formers, including at the annual Party Conferences.

Research. Our team of researchers and associate fellows produce high-quality research reports with credible policy recommendations.

Business Forum. Organisations can obtain annual membership and benefit from a deep understanding of liberal conservatism and attendance at exclusive events.

For Britain to thrive it needs a political leadership that strengthens the ties that bind us as a society and helps people achieve the aspirations they have for themselves and their families.

Thanks to Bright Blue's exceptional contribution to rethinking and renewing conservatism, we can be confident that conservatives can provide that leadership and take Britain forward to a better future.

James O'Shaughnessy, Former Director of Policy, Number 10 Downing Street
