Are you fed up with the state of our country and the current reckless Tory government?
Do you want to do something about it?
Here’s how you can get involved:
A good start is to join the Labour Party. You’ll be welcomed into a lively group of new friends of all ages and backgrounds. It’s a supportive network and a safe environment.
What do I have to do as a member?
As a member of the Labour Party any contribution you can make to help us get elected is valued. Simply joining and paying your membership fee is very much appreciated.
Of course, for us to win elections and convince people to support our policies, it requires a little more effort on occasion. Our members get involved in many different ways.
Voting at elections
Always vote. Encourage family, friends and neighbours to vote too. Vote in local elections and in national ones. In particular, we are keen to encourage young people to register to vote. For anyone, even those who feel politics is not for them, or despair of getting justice and fairness … now is the time, this is the movement that can and will change Britain for the better. So it’s up to all of us to vote.
As you might expect we hold all kinds of meetings at local branch and Constituency level and you will be invited to come along. Agendas and meetings will be sent to you so that you can follow all the activities, debates and campaigns in which we are involved. You will be made very welcome and we value each member’s contribution. We recognise however that formal meetings are not for everyone and there are many more ways you can get involved.
Fund Raising Events
Various social events are held throughout the Constituency that enable members to meet informally, have fun and raise funds in the process. You may also wish to attend one of our public talks and presentations by national, regional and local politicians, policy-makers, voluntary organizations, campaign leaders and local people
Join our campaigning
All year round we run a programme of door-knocking around the Constituency to connect with local people. Details are announced by email. Full training is given.
There are plenty of other opportunities to get out and about in support of the Labour message: delivering leaflets, supporting regular street stalls in Whitby and Scarborough, campaigning on all kinds of issues. If you are restricted by disability or family/work commitments from joining this kind of campaigning, there are possibilities to work from home in support of Labour.
Get involved as a Councillor
Labour fielded candidates in all 20 wards for the Scarborough Borough Council elections in May 2019. To find your own ward, here’s a map. Much of our campaigning is based in the wards. If you can offer help in your neighbourhood, we’d be really pleased to hear from you. To connect to the Labour election team please contact the CLP Secretary.
