Cornwall for Europe’s Purpose

Cornwall for Europe is a membership organisation campaigning for a close relationship with the European Union, and to ensure that European values, standards, and rights are upheld in British law post-Brexit. Cornwall for Europe’s activities are facilitated by our membership and supporters.

We are affiliated to the European Movement.

Our members and supporters support our mission and campaign aims through various means, including:

  • Fundraising through paid membership, donations and occasionally purchasing merchandise and campaign materials.
  • Campaigning through various activities such as street stalls, surveys, online petitions and letter writing.
  • Volunteering for various projects.
  • Participating in our digital activities. 

We take active steps to make sure that our supporters are aware of the ways in which they can help us achieve our overall purpose.

  • To tell you about any policies and campaigns that may be of interest to you.
