A new vibrant & open political party


We are VAPP - A Party of Ordinary people doing Extraordinary things

The Veterans’ and People’s Party is a party for the people.


Ordinary people.


Ordinary people who do Extraordinary things, whether that’s serving their country in the Armed Force, policing our streets, providing care to the elderly and vulnerable or serving customers in our shops, restaurants, and pubs.


The Veterans’ and People’s Party is made up of ordinary people. None of us are career politicians. Our members work for the NHS, in health and safety, armed service veterans, trades, third sector and the private sector, to name just a few.


They join and campaign for us because they are tired of the old, broken, political system and want to make a real difference to the communities in which they live. The right and left of British politics is becoming ever more extreme, that’s why we take a centre-based view on everything we do.


We’re vibrant, open and transparent and exist to build and safeguard a free and open society in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community. We champion the freedom, dignity and wellbeing of individuals. We acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full.


We respect the democratic mandate of the people of the United Kingdom, our sovereignty as a Nation, and the full authority of its people, in the governance and direction of the UK.


We believe Government should be open and transparent; democratic, rational, courageous, ethical, and take an internationalist approach.


We believe individuals should be free to act in a way that doesn't harm others; have a fundamental right to privacy, and be equal and free from discrimination.


We are VAPP – the party of the people.


Join us today.
