The Local Party

Hackney Labour Party is made up of two CLP's (Constituency Labour Parties) and 21 Branches for each of the local authority wards in the area. Branch and Constituency Parties meet every month to discuss policy (on the first and fourth Thursdays of the month respectively), get updates from their representatives and to elect officers and delegates. All members of the Labour Party are welcome to their local meetings. The video below is a beginners' guide to branch meetings.

To find out which branch you're in put your postcode into the WriteToThem website.

One of the most important functions we have is to select candidates for election. The local candidates for Parliament, and the Council are selected democratically by the membership of the Labour Party. We also send delegates to the Annual Conference to represent our views to the national party and take an active role in debating policy within the Labour Party.

Your membership card has contact details for your CLP Secretary who can provide you with notices of meetings and events.
