SMALL MEDIUM ENTERPRISES (SMEs) for LABOUR (www.sme4labour.org)
The Labour Party believes that small medium enterprises businesses are the backbone of the United Kingdom, making up 99.2% of all private sector businesses in the United Kingdom, employing over 14.4 million people with an estimated combined annual turnover of £1,600 billion accounted for 48.1percent of private sector turnover.
Through Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) for Labour, we want to provide a forum whereby SMEs can work in partnership with the Labour Party and continue to inform our economic policies.
BAME LABOUR (www.bamelabour.org.uk)
BAME Labour seeks to empower ethnic minority members within the Labour Party and campaigns for greater representation of ethnic minority communities in public life. Through encouraging increased participation in the political process BAME Labour empowers its members to campaign for a fairer, more equal and democratic society.
We are a democratically constituted membership organisation. It is affiliated to the Labour Party but is politically and organisationally independent. BAME Labour works closely with the Labour Party because of our shared values of equality, tolerance and opportunity for all.
BAME Labour welcomes everything that Labour in Government did to improve the quality of life for Britain’s ethnic minority communities but continues to campaign for further equality, both within the Labour Party and across society.
We are an accountable, inclusive organisation that provides a bridge to the Labour Party in ways that ensure that the voice of BAME members and communities matter – and are heard.
