Membership rates explained

The Labour Party is a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation and as such relies on membership fees and donations in order to maintain a solid financial base from which to campaign. To ensure this continues, our membership rates are linked to the rate of inflation and are subject to increases on 1 January every year.
