About


Swansea Labour Students is the student society affiliated to the Welsh Labour
Party. As a group we campaign for Labour values on campus and in the Swansea
Bay area, alongside hosting a wide range of social activities. We’re a broad-
church society and welcome all Labour Party traditions as well as those who are
just looking to find out a bit more about politics.


Campaigning:
Swansea Labour Students takes pride in its record campaigning for the party and
its values over the years. On campus we’ve pushed for the Students Union to take
anti-racism more seriously while continually agitating for a Real Living Wage to be
paid to people working in the SU. In the city we do our bit helping the homeless
with our #KeepSwanseaWarm campaign.
Alongside this we actively campaign for the Labour Party across Swansea and
beyond. Although the 2019 General Election was a huge disappointment, every
seat in Swansea Bay stayed red and we took part in the most campaigning
sessions outside our constituency of any Labour society in Wales.


Socials:
Socials make up most of the events we host throughout the year. They are a laid-
back and friendly environment and probably the best place to start if you’re
looking to get involved in the society. We host pub crawls, quizzes, coffee chats
as well as joint events with other political societies.


Political Education:
We also host a wide range of talks from figures in and around the Welsh Labour
and Trade Union movement. In the past these have included the First Minister
Mark Drakeford, the Counsel General for Wales Jeremy Miles, Housing and Local
Government Minister Julie James and MP for Gower Tonia Antoniazzi to name but
a few!


Whether you’re a seasoned campaigner or just interested in finding out more
about politics, Swansea Labour Students is the place for you!
