Labour Students Society

Who we are

Cardiff University Labour Students is the biggest political society at Cardiff University. We give our members the opportunity to meet high-profile politicians such as Jeremy Corbyn, Tom Watson and Carwyn Jones, tour the Welsh Assembly, engage in regular socials and much more. We also work with the wider Labour Party, campaigning for our local MP Jo Stevens and AM Jenny Rathbone and taking part in Young Labour and Welsh Labour conferences. Aside from being a great way to get involved in politics our society is also a great place to make likeminded friends with a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic socials.

What we do

  • Aim to help students who share our values of equality and opportunity meet likeminded people and discuss their opinions in a welcoming group of fellow students. 
  • Take part in National Labour Student events, both social and campaigning. 
  • Give you the opportunity to connect with your Labour representatives
  • At a time when it is crucial to speak up for equality and regulation, Cardiff Labour Students offers a platform for people from all backgrounds to join the national debate and help rebuild the United Kingdom as a fairer and stronger country.
  • Campaign regularly in Cardiff Central for our local Labour elected representatives. Coming off the back of a soaring increase to Jenny Rathbone AM's majority in 2016, our work campaigning for the council and general election saw us hold Cardiff Council, including Labour taking all 8 representatives in Roath and Cathays, and Jo Stevens being elected with the largest majority in Wales. Haven't campaigned or wouldn't know where to start? We'll ease you in at your own pace! 

Planned events for the year include:

  • A tour of the Welsh Assembly
  • Paint the Town Red, our inaugural social. Our freshers’ week pub crawl with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere
  • Visits from a number of high profile politicians throughout the year.
  • Numerous friendly pub visits.
  • Pizza and Politics days.

And many other great opportunities that only Cardiff University Labour Students can offer.
