London First is a membership organisation, with the mission to make London the best place in the world for business. We’re focused on keeping our capital working for the whole of the UK.

We've galvanised the business community to bring pragmatic solutions to London's challenges over the years.

We have been instrumental in establishing the Mayor of London, pioneered Teach First, driven the campaign for Crossrail and, most recently, lobbied for government action on airport capacity, leading to the approval of a new Heathrow runway. 

Now, we are working on solutions to what our business leaders see as the top priorities for our capital: talent, housing and transport.  

We also scan the horizon, link with other cities, and support our members on the key issues that will keep our capital globally competitive.
