National

38 Degrees – brings you together with other people to take action on the issues that matter to you and bring about real change in the UK.

CPAG – Child Poverty Action Group – CPAG provides information about low-income families and the policies that affect them. We monitor official poverty statistics and carry out research, providing evidence of the shortcomings of the social security and tax credits systems in regular briefings to government ministers, MPs and the general public. We comment on any proposed policy changes likely to affect low-income families with children.

Coalition of Resistance – is a broad united national campaign against cuts and privatisation in our workplaces, community and welfare services, based on general agreement with the Founding Statement issued by Tony Benn in August 2010. It is linked to no particular political party, but committed to open working in a non-sectarian way with all organisations seeking to co-ordinate resistance; and is dedicated to supplementing, rather than supplanting, trade union, student, pensioner and community opposition to austerity measures.

DPAC – Disabled People Against Cuts – is about disabled people and their allies. DPAC is UK based but we know that disabled people in other countries are suffering from austerity cuts and a lack of fundamental rights. We welcome all to join us in fighting for justice and human rights for all disabled people.

Fair Pay Network – a national, broad identity coalition dedicated to leading the fight against the endemic levels of low-paid work and the increasing prevalence of in-work poverty that blight Britain’s social and economic landscape.

Gingerbread – provide advice and practical support for single parents and also campaign to improve the lives of all single parent families.

KONP – Keep Our NHS Public – the NHS stands at a crossroads. For nearly 60 years Britain has enjoyed a National Health Service that strives to be comprehensive, accessible and high value for money. Now, government reforms threaten both the ethos of the NHS, and the planned and equitable way in which it delivers care to patients. We call on organisations, healthcare workers, patients and the public to campaign to protect the NHS from further privatisation and fragmentation, and to keep our NHS public.

LRD – Labour Research Department – founded in July 1912 LRD has maintained the principles embodied in its initial statement throughout the last 95 years, and provided its affiliates with a wealth of information and research.

NPC – National Pensioners Convention – main objective is to promote the welfare and interests of all pensioners, as a way of securing dignity, respect and financial security in retirement. With more support the NPC will be able to continue to develop its organisation and strengthen its influence as the campaigning voice of both today’s and tomorrow’s pensioners.

Touchstone – an informal blog by TUC staff about policy issues that are in the news, or ought to be. Contributions should not be taken as formal statements of TUC policy. While written from a TUC perspective, contributions will often cover areas where there is yet no settled TUC policy and go into areas in more detail than our formal decisions.

UK Uncut – start with some simple points of agreement. The brutal cuts to services being inflicted by the current Government are unnecessary, unfair and ideologically motivated. There are alternatives to the cuts, and we are not all in this together. But unless we take action, and take the facts to our friends, our families and those around us, they will get away with it.

International

Amnesty – a campaigning organisation; it’s what we do. Our purpose is to protect people wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied.

Cuba Solidarity Campaign – campaigns in the UK against the US blockade of Cuba and for the Cuban peoples’ right to self-determination and sovereignty.

ETUC – European Trade Union Confederation – set up in 1973 to promote the interests of working people at European level and to represent them in the EU institutions.

ITUC – International Trade Union Confederation – the main international trade union organisation, representing the interests of working people worldwide. The ITUC was founded at its inaugural Congress in Vienna, Austria, on 1 -3 November 2006. It groups together the former affiliates of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU) and the World Confederation of Labour (WCL), along with trade union organisations which had no global affiliation. The ICFTU and the WCL dissolved themselves on 31 October 2006, to pave the way for the creation of the ITUC.

LabourStart – online news service maintained by a global network of volunteers which aims to serve the international trade union movement by collecting and disseminating information — and by assisting unions in campaigning and other ways.
