The CLP Policy Officer role is a varied and exciting role within your CLP. Whether you are a current CLP Policy Officer, or are interested in taking on the role in future, you can find out all about the role and its responsibilities below.

The CLP Policy Officer Role

CLP Policy Officers play a leading role in bringing the Labour Party's people-powered policy making process to life. An active CLP Policy Officer will offer members meaningful opportunities to play their part in developing Labour Party policies, and help members learn and engage with current Labour Party policy consultations and issues. 

Key roles and responsibilities include organising events and discussions, making submissions to the National Policy Forum (NPF), engaging with elected representatives in your area, and supporting the submission of the CLP's motion to Annual Conference.
