Your questions answered
We’ve answered some of our most frequently asked questions about joining – and being a member of – our movement. If you still can’t find the answer you need, you can call, write to or email our friendly Membership Team.
People join the party for hundreds of different individual reasons – from being fed up with the status quo or wanting to make a difference in their local community to wanting to shape policy and have a say in the direction of the Labour Party.
If you’re 14 or over, not a member of another political party, and are a British citizen or have lived in the UK for a year or more, then absolutely; come on in. We need your passion, your experience and your voice in our movement.
As little as £3 a year. Most members pay our standard rate of £4.38 a month and many choose to pay more to support our campaigns.
We’re built on the contributions of our many dedicated members. Your membership fees pay for the posters, leaflets, rallies and events that you see up and down the country. Every penny is put to good use. Without our members’ contributions, we simply wouldn’t be able to run the Labour Party.
Keep an eye out for a membership pack in the post. Your membership card is in there – along with a whole host of useful information about what you can get involved in. As soon as that arrives, you’ll be a card-carrying member of the Labour Party.
You’ll have a say in our policy and vote in internal elections. We’ll provide you with all the tools and resources to get involved in events, campaign days and rallies and introduce you to a huge movement of other like-minded members. By joining, you’ll also become a part of your local Labour Party, who will be in touch with ways you can get involved with loads of different campaigns and events near you. You can get involved in everything from policy making to campaigning to social events right away.
