Acting as a central hub of resources and contacts it assists campaigning independents by organising events and knowledge sharing. The Independent Network also runs a national media campaign to educate the electorate about their choice of candidates. Importantly, it is a network enabling Independent candidates from across the UK to learn from each other.
