In October 2013, the Society’s members adopted a Statement on Political Engagement showing the Society’s willingness to engage with any organisation that shares its objectives and beliefs. To help bring the commitments in the Statement to life, the Society set up a Campaigns Fund which supports campaigning activity (primarily within the Society’s core trading areas) that promotes the aims of co-operation in the political arena and supports the objectives of the Society.
