The ILP comes from a long tradition of left-wing organisations that have sought collective solutions to the inequalities and destruction caused by capitalism.
We seek to continue that tradition today, working within the Labour Party and alongside others to extend co-operative solutions to human problems by democratic means.
There are a number of ways you can support us in our aims.
The ILP has been a democratic membership organisation since it was founded as a political party in 1893. The modern ILP is a pressure group and publishing organisation working within the Labour Party and among the wider Labour and socialist movement.
To be an ILP member today you must be a member of the Labour Party.
Members help set ILP policy and perspective, elect the National Administrative Council, and contribute to our discussions, campaigns and events. In some areas, they also come together to form ILP branches.
If you are interested in ILP membership, please contact us via email or post for more information.
ILP Friends is open to people who are not members of the Labour Party but feel some agreement with the ILP’s ideas and want to support our efforts.
Friends receive invitations to ILP events and discussions, and are kept up to date with the ILP website.
