Open Britain defines itself as campaigning for the United Kingdom to be open and inclusive, open for business, open to trade and investment, open to talent and hard work, open to Europe and to the world.[3] It is also campaigning for Britain to remain in the Single Market as part of the outcome of the "Brexit negotiations.

In October 2016, Open Britain launched a 'Write to Remain' letter-writing campaign directed at "Theresa May asking her to guarantee the right of EU nationals to stay in the UK.[4]

The individuals involved in the campaign group include former Ministers "Pat McFadden (Labour) and "Norman Lamb (Liberal Democrat).[5] Conservatives "Anna Soubry, "Nicky Morgan, and "Dominic Grieve cut their ties with Open Britain in April 2017 after it began to campaign against the re-election of anti-EU members of parliament, mostly Conservatives.[6]
