Have you recently joined the Labour Party but are unsure about what happens at branch meetings? Or maybe you’ve been a member for a while but have never really understood the difference between a constituency and a branch? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

We brought together a group of new and more established members to get a better idea of what members want to know  about their local Labour Party. We’ve put together a selection of short videos to answer the questions new (and not so new) members most often ask us. We hope they will give you a clearer understanding of how the Labour Party works locally and how you can you can get more involved to help make a difference.

At the bottom of this page you’ll also find links to the official  Labour Party rule book, our social media profiles and who to contact if you have any more questions.
