Welcome to the website of Stroud Constituency Labour Party

The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party.  It 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.

At our meetings we discuss national and local policy issues, hear reports from our Labour Councillors. We plan our campaigns and other activities. Hundreds of people have joined Stroud Constituency Labour Party during the last few years and we campaigned together successfully to re-elect David Drew as our Labour MP this year. David’s office is at 5a Lansdown in Stroud - you can contact him via david.drew.mp@parliament.uk to make any enquiries, ask for help or to see when he is available. He is usually up at Westminster during most of the week but will be holding regular surgeries.

We also have a Labour-led Stroud District Council - one of only 3 Labour-led councils in the south west.  There are 18 Labour councillors in a co-operative arrangement with the 8 Green and 2 Lib Dem councillors to run the council.  The council is one of a small number to be building council houses again, and is the first council in Europe to be carbon neutral. They have got the highest satisfaction rates ever from residents and businesses for services provided, despite doing this on a shoestring as government grants have been reduced and now removed altogether. They are proud of what they’ve achieved, particularly for older residents and in getting more affordable housing for some of the 5,000 people on the council house waiting list.

This Tory Government is responsible for ‘austerity’ measures that have resulted in the need for food banks across the country, refusing to give unaccompanied child refugees a safe haven, selling arms to be used against Yemeni civilians, doubling homelessness, cutting disability benefits, killing badgers against all scientific evidence, allowing zero hours contracts to leave thousands of families on low incomes, leaving millions of public sector workers like nurses and firefighters on pay so low they qualify for help from foodbanks. The list could go on - and we are campaigning for a fairer strategy to tackle our economic problems.
