Get Involved


Join the local party and help shape Labour’s future.

If you were one of the 17,000+ local voters who supported my re-election, from a £1 a year you can become a Labour member.

Everyone who has been involved in the last few weeks knows there was a real buzz about our successful campaign here in Birmingham Northfield and that there was a real sense of shared purpose.

Across the country, 21,000 more people have joined Labour since the results of the General Election became known last Friday. They know the threat which 5 more years of Tory Government poses to everyday people means an effective opposition is needed today more than ever.

By joining our local Labour Party here in Longbridge, Kings Norton, Northfield and Weoley, you can be part of making that happen and have a say in shaping Labour’s future.

So please, if you believe in a fairer society, don’t just get angry about what the damage the Tories are going to do. Get involved to help us hold them to account.
