Labour’s policy-making process is run through the National Policy Forum (NPF) in partnership with party members, stakeholders and the wider community.

The National Policy Forum is made up of over 200 representatives from across the Labour Party, including members from every UK nation and region, local government, the Parliamentary Labour Party, Labour’s National Executive Committee, and Labour’s affiliated trade unions and socialist societies.

National Policy Forum representatives are placed into one of eight policy commissions that examine specific policy areas; each commission is co-convened by the Shadow Secretary of State and an NEC member.

The current commissions are:

Economy, Business & Trade


Health & Social Care

Early Years, Education & Skills

Justice & Home Affairs

Housing, Local Government & Transport

Work, Pensions & Equality

Environment, Energy, & Culture

The work of the National Policy Forum from 2015 to 2017 culminated in Labour’s General Election manifesto, For the Many, Not the Few.

Labour is now building on its 2017 manifesto and wants to hear the views of as many people as possible.
