Bath Labour working for you
We work all year round, not just at election times.
We regularly canvass to find out what’s important to residents and support residents and campaigns on issues big and small.
There are some big challenges facing Bath. Cuts are impacting our buses, social care, education and NHS
Care about your community? Help us make Bath a great place to live, join the Labour Party
The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party which “…believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few, where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe, and where we live together, freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.” – Clause IV of The Labour Party Rule Book
In 2019, it is the largest political party in western Europe with a vision renewed – to uproot the growing economic and social inequalities now devastating our communities and to build a country that works for the many not the few.
In these times of relentless austerity and uncertainty, we stand for the basic rights and opportunities that underpin a caring society: building the homes people need, keeping communities safe, funding our schools so that every child has a fair chance in life, restoring the NHS to its place at the heart of our social contract with each other.
We are a proud internationalist political party, promoting peace and co-operation to address urgent global challenges: climate change, regional conflict, the resurgence of far-right ideology and violence, the retreat towards nationalism.
Our local Party has increased by over 300 members since the General Election. We organise regular all-members meetings, visiting speakers and debates, canvassing, and a range of other campaigning activities. Bath Labour has a thriving Women’s group, growing BAME, LGBT and other forums.
