New research reveals 835 examples of new public ownership across the globe to inspire us here in the UK!
We’ve been told that public ownership – of OUR railways, energy, water and Royal Mail - is somehow ‘unrealistic’. We’ve been told that drastic cuts – to OUR NHS, schools and council services – are for some reason ‘inevitable’. We don’t believe what we’re told anymore.
With less than 24 hours until polling opens, we've asked you to tell us why you're voting for public services tomorrow. A lot of you are understandably very concerned about the state of the NHS, privatised utility companies, railways, Royal Mail and student loans, to name a few. The future of our public services has become a central issue in this election.

If we want to make sure this country is run for people, not profit, now is the time to act.

Yesterday the Bus Services Bill was passed. Unfortunately, the government has gone ahead with banning councils in England from setting up new public bus companies.
This model of community ownership couldn’t be more different than the ‘ownership by the few’ practiced by most of the media.
The government confirmed today that it wants to BAN local authorities from setting up new public bus companies (in the Committee stage of the Bus Services Bill). This is despite the success of existing municipal bus companies like Reading Buses and Nottingham City Transport.
Our new research, covered in the Mirror today, shows the level of dividends paid out to shareholders of the big five bus companies: Arriva, Stagecoach, First, Go-Ahead, and National Express.
Our polling shows that only 17% trust the government's claim that removing key legal duties for councils won't lead to privatisation of children's services.
In September 2015 Robin Hood Energy became the first publicly owned energy company in operation since 1948! This not for profit energy supplier was set up in 2015 by Nottingham City Council and it aims to offer affordable energy and fight fuel poverty across the region.
David Pike, founder of Our Energy, explains...
Our mission is simple: We will give power back to 1 million UK citizens, literally! We want you to have ownership of energy company and profits returned to you.
