What we do
Established in 2021 by Miriam Cates MP and Danny Kruger MP, the New Social Covenant Unit (the NSCU) exists to share an old-new set of ideas in British politics. We believe that the primary purpose of public policy should be to strengthen families, communities, and the nation: the associations that make individuals happy, safe and free. Given the unique threats and opportunities of our age we need a ‘new social covenant’: a restatement and adaptation of these ideas for the 21st century.
The New Social Covenant Unit is not a think-tank. We exist to promote ideas and policy suggestions from a range of people who agree with aspects of – not necessarily all – the ideas we believe in. Rather than claiming to have all the answers, we want to help British politics pivot towards the great opportunities of the new era we are in – to create a more local, more connected, more sustainable life for all. Different people will have different ideas of how to make this happen, and differences and disagreements are fruitful.
We want to work with individuals and organisations who share our vision, or just parts of it, whether they are on the Left or Right of politics or reject that binary distinction altogether. If you’d like to explore a collaboration please get in touch with Imogen Sinclair at email@example.com
