Welcome to York Labour


The Labour Party prides itself on inclusivity and social fairness and we welcome members from all strata of society and all walks of life.

York Labour consists of two parliamentary constituencies. York Central is currently represented by our own Labour MP Rachael Maskell: the 'hardest working MP in Yorkshire'. York Outer is currently held by the Conservatives, but Labour gains in the last election suggest that it is a winnable target seat for the future. Our Prospective Parliamentary Candidate there is Anna Perrett.

Within the two constituencies, the city is divided into 21 wards, each with their own ward Labour Party, so feel free to get involved in your area! Ward parties meet usually once a month, where your involvement and input in campaigning or working for local communities would be really welcome. You’ll quickly find yourself a valued member of the team. Find out more about your local ward candidates here.

Constituency level General Meetings occur monthly, usually on the third Friday of the month, where city wide policy is discussed and reports delivered by our MP and the leader of the Labour Group on the City of York Council, Janet Looker. All members are invited to attend and debate at these meetings, although only appointed delegates from each ward can vote.

If you prefer not to commit to regular meetings, there are still countless ways you can help, by coming out canvassing on the doorsteps with us, manning street stalls, helping out at fundraising events, taking part in phone banks, delivering leaflets in your local area, or just by spending an afternoon stuffing envelopes. For more information on how you can help out, click here.

Decisions, as they say, are made by the people who show up, and we want to hear from you, no matter your experiences in life. York Labour is committed to equality, and to creating a fair world for all those who live in it. We want to get to know you, your own individual experiences and challenges, so that we can make York a better place for everyone. Join us by clicking here.
