Join or Support the CWO

All members (men and women) of the Party can be members of the CWO as long as they agree to its Aim “To support more women into public life”.

If you are not a member of the Party but are still interested in the work of the CWO then please join as a “Friend of the CWO”. This limits access to certain elements such as the CWO Development training but other events such as Parliamentary Forums and events are open to all.

Join Us

We are Free to all members, but without your generous support we cant develop our CWO women to success and support in political life.

The CWO is a self funding organisation run mainly by volunteers. We do not receive money from the Conservative Party. Please give what you can afford, donations start at £10 . If you wish to give over £500 please get in touch cwo@conservativewomen.uk
