Sheffield Hallam Labour is a campaigning party. Members participate in shaping national Labour policy and lobbying MPs in government and in opposition to act in the interests of the many. We work with local communities to protect services and amenities, and to help represent residents’ needs and concerns in both local and national contexts.
We are proud that Hallam is represented in Parliament by our Labour MP, Olivia Blake. Olivia and our two Labour Councillors embrace the democratic socialist principles on which the Labour Party is founded. As a local Party we are driven by the country’s desperate need for a Labour government, and do everything within our capabilities to see that come about.
We organise through our five local branches which broadly align with the council wards of Crookes & Crosspool, Dore & Totley, Ecclesall, Fulwood, and Stannington.
Members campaign at branch and constituency level on issues which are of concern to local residents. Branches meet regularly to discuss these issues, plan campaigning sessions, discuss political issues, and, of course, socialise.
We also get together at monthly Constituency Labour Party (CLP) meetings (except for August and December), when members across the constituency hear from guest speakers on pertinent issues, share information about what is happening across Sheffield Hallam, and debate current issues.
We are all volunteers, bringing different skills, but we work together to try and ensure that the people of Sheffield Hallam have a voice on the issues that matter to them.
We are always happy to welcome new members in. To contact us directly get in touch with your local branch via the relevant page on this site, or use our Contact page. You can join the party here. If you are able to help, especially during election campaigns, you can volunteer if you are a member or registered supporter. If you volunteer or sign up we will contact you using the details you provide.
