How do I have my say?
Democracy runs through everything we do – including how we make our policies. Every member has the right to get involved in the process – it’s how we can make sure the party is always politically connected to the people we want to represent.
There’s no such thing as a ‘typical’ Labour Party member – we’re all different, with different motivations, backgrounds and ideas. That diversity, powered by our enthusiasm and united by our values, is a big part of what makes our party special.
So if you’ve got a great idea, here’s how you can get started:
Through your local party:
Local parties often hold policy discussions at meetings, where you can debate the topic of the day, and the ideas you create can be submitted to the party for further discussion.
Have your say online
Our latest policy consultations are online for you to have your say on. The Labour Policy Forum has our consultation documents and each one covers an issue we’d love to hear Labour members views on.
You can ask questions, make a submission of your own thoughts or ideas, and comment on other people’s.
As with local meetings, your submissions and ideas are collected, and will become part of the wider discussion that shapes the party’s policy in the future.
