What is Young Labour?
Young Labour is the youth wing of the Labour Party and home for progressive young people. All members of the Labour Party aged 14 to 26 are automatically members of Young Labour. Being part of Young Labour is a great way to get involved in politics and meet like minded people who share your values.
Young Labour Groups organise regular socials, campaigns days and other events as well as taking part in other Labour Party regional and national conferences.
Young Labour and Usdaw
Usdaw supports Young Labour and encourages its young members to join the Labour Party and get involved in local Young Labour activities. Usdaw also works with Young Labour at a national level, sending a delegation to the Young Labour Conference and currently has a representative on the Young Labour National Committee. In order for Young Labour and the Labour Party in general to take action on the issues affecting young workers, you need to play your part in making sure that the voices of young Usdaw members are heard loud and clear.
Getting involved with Young Labour in your area
Young Labour is organised into local Young Labour Groups. These are similar to your local Constituency Labour Party but may cover a slightly different area and are exclusively for Labour members aged 26 and under. To find out if there is a Young Labour Group covering your area, or for support in setting one up, please contact Young Labour nationally at www.younglabour.org.uk/contact or your regional office at www.labour.org.uk/links
