Change Britain is a pressure group in the United Kingdom set up by leaders of the Vote Leave campaign after the 2016 Referendum, in which 51.9% of participating voters voted in favour of leaving the European Union. Its stated aim is "to campaign for a Brexit which takes back control of our laws, borders, money and trade".
Change Britain was founded as a successor to the Vote Leave campaign, with support from many of its key figureheads including Labour MP Gisela Stuart (Chair) and Conservative MP and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. The group had attracted criticism for seemingly dropping Vote Leave's pledge to increase spending on the National Health Service (NHS), but chairwoman of both organisations, Gisela Stuart, reaffirmed this pledge in a speech to the House of Commons.
