John Cope

CPF Champion for LGBT+

Originally from the East Midlands, John has spent his career campaigning on education, social mobility, and LGBT+ rights, as well as advising three education ministers, including Nicky Morgan during her time as Secretary of State and Minister for Equalities. Currently, John works for a leading business association on their education and skills policy work, having previously been a founder and director at the Education Policy Institute. Outside of work, John serves on the Tory Reform Group policy board, the national executive of LGBT+ Conservatives, and volunteers as a Governor of a special educational needs school.

At the core of John’s political beliefs is a commitment to freedom and people being able to succeed in life however they see best, regardless of background or identity. It's this belief that makes John a Conservative.

CPF 'Tomorrow's Champions' Panel

The CPF has always played a key part in those historic periods of renewal when our Party has bounced back from election shocks and reset the debate and policy agenda for its generation.

Bringing together some of the best and the brightest young talent in the Party with strong visibility and credibility in key policy areas, our 'Tomorrow's Champions' Panel coordinates two-way policy conversations with particular groups around their specific areas of expertise and interest.

We believe the CPF should reach out to offer a deeper conversation with key voter cohorts who aren’t yet members - or even active supporters. The data suggests that policy is the area of the party that is of most interest to the groups we need to reconnect with: the young, those wanting our help with major life-shaping challenges, and other key cohorts of voters.

That’s why the CPF Champions will:
• Support the Party's policy development and outreach work
• Build a network of voters on the frontline of their communities
• Liaise with the Chairman of the CPF, George Freeman MP, on policy development with Ministers
• Work with the CPF to support development of CPF policy consultations
• Help with Outreach in support of their relevant outreach work

For further details, read our Champions' biography pages, below. If you know anyone who you would nominate as a Champion for a particular area of policy, please let us know.
