Make UK is backing manufacturing to engineer a digital, global and green future.

Our dedicated Policy and Engagement team influence government policy to ensure the issues that matter to UK manufacturing are heard.  

We’re campaigning to ensure our sector can position ourselves as global leaders on world markets, make a digital future reality, lead the green revolution, and inspire the next generation of creators, makers and innovators. 

Our message to Government is clear, back UK manufacturing and support manufacturers to: 

  • boost productivity;
  • power economic growth; and 
  • deliver shared opportunity in every region of the UK.

We're making the voice of UK manufacturing count, and changing Government policy
