Join the Labour Party
The Labour Party is a century old political organisation, born out of the trade union movement and built on equality, social justice and compassion. We are a movement of over half a million members working to elect a Government that puts those shared values into action.
People from all across the country have joined Labour to make sure their voice is heard and to work together to create a country that works for the many, not the few. Here's why you should join our movement.
Why do people join?
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. Will you join us?
Am I eligible to join?
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. Be a part of the UK's largest political party.
How much does it cost?
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. It only takes two minutes to join.
Where is my money going?
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. Together we can do something amazing.
What happens after I join?
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. We're waiting to hear from you.
What can I do as a member?
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. Let's go.
