2014 is a big year for the Labour Party. The local elections and the European Parliament elections will both happen on 22 May, and the Young Fabians have an important role to play in helping the Labour Party win across the country. In addition, the Scottish Referendum takes places on 18 September - we would like to play our part in keeping Great Britain together.
Our challenge at the Young Fabians is to get organised and build a culture of campaigning. Starting now, we hope to build a campaigning culture to help Labour win this year, in the General Election next year, and the London Mayoral Election in 2016.
That is why we have created a Young Fabians Campaigns Programme. This year's Campaigns Programme is an opportunity for all members: some will be veteran campaigners who can share their experience, while others will see it as an opportunity get more campaigning experience - both are integral to helping Labour win.
The campaigning sessions will be mixed with training from experienced professionals.
