Terms & Conditions

Donations

Donations to a political party are regulated by the Political Parties Elections and Referendums Act 2000.

  • Donors giving more than £500 must be on a UK electoral register (we will check before accepting a donation).
  • For donors giving more than £1,500 to a Constituency Labour Party or the Scottish Labour Party, or more than £7,500 to the national Labour Party (including the English Regions and Wales) in a calendar year, their name and the value of the donation will be sent to the Electoral Commission which will publish details on its website. The donor's address will not be made public.
  • Donations must be from the donor's own funds and may not be passed on from a third party. It is an offence not to reveal the true source of a donation.
  • Donations to political parties are not tax-deductible.
  • This donation facility is provided for individuals to make donations to the Labour Party. UK companies, Limited Liability Partnerships, Trade Unions and Unincorporated Associations may also make donations to the Labour Party.

Members

  • Full membership rules and procedures are available in the Labour Party rule book.

Applications to become an Affiliated or Registered Supporter will be rejected if:

  • You are not registered as an elector at the same address provided in your application. The Labour Party may require you to provide evidence in support of this.
  • You were excluded from previous membership of the Labour Party or your membership ended while you were subject to suspension.

In the event of your application being rejected your application fee will not be refunded and you will have no right to appeal. If your application is rejected this does not preclude you from applying to become a full member of the party.
