The LGA Labour Group exists to provide a strong voice for Labour in local government. We represent and support Labour Groups in England and Wales and the Labour councillors within them.

LGA Labour Women’s Taskforce
The LGA Labour Women’s Taskforce was established in Spring 2018 to look at the challenges faced by women in local government, and what we in the LGA Labour Group can do to support women who want to become councillors and who are already councillors.
Parental leave policy for councillors
The LGA Labour Women’s Taskforce has drawn up a model parental leave policy that can be used by Labour Groups and by full councils.
The LGA Labour Group publishes a variety of reports to provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and to act as a platform for ideas and argument for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
