Our aim is to contribute in a balanced and respectful way to the dialogue between religion and politics.

The Catholic Union of Great Britain is a voluntary association of the Catholic laity in England, Wales and Scotland. Its purpose is to advocate, express and uphold, by all proper and legitimate means, Catholic moral and spiritual principles and interests, and promote a Christian standpoint in public affairs, regardless of political parties and affiliations.
