My Local Party

Representing Labour

Local opportunities

Local Labour Parties are a hive of organisational activity, and there is always a place for you to get involved. As well as attending events, campaigning and supporting the work of existing role holders, there are various roles you can look to hold to represent the Labour Party. From the various CLP positions, to being a councillor or standing as a candidate for office, find out more about them today.


Roles in your local party

All CLPs have six key officers – including roles such as Chair or Secretary – who run the CLP. CLPs also have the ability to add additional Co-ordinator roles who will help the officers with particular tasks. This means CLPs have the flexibility to have Executive Committees (EC) that suit their particular circumstances, but not all CLPs have all the roles detailed below, and they will not always be full voting members of the EC. Each CLP will be different, and our party is always evolving, so if you’re interested in finding out more, why not get in touch with your local party to understand the makeup of yours?
