General Election 2019
We have a General Election taking place on December 12th 2019. We have an unprecedented opportunity for a new way of thinking to face up to the Climate Emergency and to protect and secure good, well-paid unionised jobs for the Many as part of our Green Industrial Revolution. We want women to have better representation, with decent pay and maternity leave, flexible hours and support during menopause. 1,000 new Sure-Start centres will help plug the gap in Early Years care where we know the most impact is made on a child’s development.
We have a bold new vision to end decades of austerity and focus on giving everyone a decent quality of life from cradle to grave.
We are on a journey. Come with us.

Welcome to Stroud Constituency Labour Party
For more than 100 years the Labour Party, through the efforts of our members and supporters, has brought about massive social change. Our proudest achievements include the welfare state, the NHS, our education system, and equal pay. However, we know that even a century later, our country, and many of our institutions remain in the grip of a wealthy and privileged few.
Since 2010 the Conservative Party has systematically used the excuse of austerity to once again penalise the vulnerable, the poor and the marginal. The arrival of the Johnson government marks a further shift to the right. These are now very scary times. As power slips away from them – as it will – they will use any tactic, any slander and any excuse to cling on to their power – through the excuse of Brexit, the demonisation of the marginalised and vulnerable, and the appeal to ‘common sense’ – which is anything but.
Stroud Labour Party welcomes those who care about our society. We understand that only by cooperation and our active involvement locally and nationally can we defend our vision for a fairer society, where equality of opportunity means exactly that, and where everyone has the freedom to achieve their potential, no matter what the circumstances of their birth.
Labour is a democratic socialist party – with all the obligations, duties and responsibilities which that involves.
Stroud Constituency Labour Party (CLP) is based at 5a Lansdown in Stroud. The constituency covers a large area from the River Severn on the west, from Hardwicke down to Berkeley and from Frampton across to Bisley. Within this area there are a number of local branches that hold regular meetings to discuss political issues and organise local events and campaigns that help the local community.
We organise campaigns, social events, elections and debates on policies. A lot of Labour Party activity takes place at branch level – campaigns, socials and fund-raising. Labour members take part in choosing local council candidates, attend Labour Party Conferences and contribute to making local and national Labour Party policy.
