We are the Constituency Labour Party (CLP) for Wolverhampton South West, a UK Parliamentary constituency in the West Midlands. We have an active and vibrant membership and a number of ongoing campaigns.
About the Labour Party
The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party.
It believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few, where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe, and where we live together, freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.
―Clause IV of The Labour Party Rule Book
Wolverhampton South West is a winnable marginal. In 2017, a hard-fought campaign resulted in the election of Eleanor Smith, the first British African-Caribbean MP for a West Midlands constituency. In addition to effective campaigning at election times, the constituency campaigns on key local, regional, and national issues throughout the year.
2021 will be a busy electoral year with the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner election and Metro Mayor election as well as the local City of Wolverhampton Council elections, all postponed from May 2020.
The CLP is the locus of local party activity. Getting active in your local Party is a great way to:

- Bring new ideas and enthusiasm to your local Party
- Make your voice heard in shaping the direction of the Party and Party policy
- Organise local campaigns and get Labour’s message out to your local community
- Help Labour win the next general election
