A constituency elects an MP but it’s also made up of different wards, with each ward electing three councillors to local government. Your Constituency Labour Party is therefore divided into branches. The membership of the branches is drawn from the Labour Party members who reside or are registered to vote within the ward.
Branch members are able to attend branch meetings (which usually take place once a month), the Annual General Meeting (where your Branch’s Executive Committee is usually elected), and council candidate selection meetings. You can also submit a motion to your Branch, and if it passes it will go to the next CLP meeting. If your CLP votes for the motion it will either go to the Local Government Committee or to Labour’s National Policy Forum. Your Branch is your first port of call for getting involved. Find out about your Branch’s next meeting and go along.
