Listed on this page are:
Organisations affiliated to Ilford South Labour Party through their local branches. They pay an affiliation fee and can send delegates, who must be members of Ilford South Constituency Labour Party in their own right, to the General Committee of Ilford South CLP. These can only be organisations which are affiliated to the Labour Party nationally.
Organisations to which Ilford South CLP has decided to affiliate to demonstrate support.
- London Co-operative Party (Co-operative Group)
We believe that people will achieve more by working together than they can by working alone. We support the efforts of those who seek success through that co-operative endeavour.
We believe that the only way to create a just and fair society is through power being spread evenly throughout society, and not arbitrarily based on wealth, class, gender or race.
We work to promote co-operatives and all forms of mutual organisation.
We work in partnership with the Labour Party as its sister party to achieve these ends. There are currently 29 Labour/Co-operative MPs including Ed Balls, Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, as well as seven other Government ministers.

They include frontline staff and managers working full or part time in local authorities, the NHS, the police service, colleges and schools, the electricity, gas and water industries, transport and the voluntary sector. Last year UNISON recruited 137,000 new members – 375 per day.

There is also a managerial and supervisory section called Sata – the Supervisory, Administrative and Technical Association. This is a special section of the union representing employees in middle and lower management or with administrative or technical responsibilities.
Whatever trade you work in, whatever type of job you perform or whatever your personal circumstances – full-time, part-time, permanent, casual, retired, unemployed – Usdaw is always here to help you.
- Campaign For Labour Party Democracy
CLPD campaigns for:
an accountable leadership; the right to amend Policy Forum documents; stronger links between the Party and the unions; the pensions/earning link; progressive taxation.
We oppose: the development of Foundation Hospitals; creeping privatisation in health and education; the state funding of political parties; proportional representation; interference with a CLPâ€™s choice of candidate.
- Comprehensive Future
We have never had a fully comprehensive school system in England. We brand thousands of children as failures at the age of 11. The 11 plus still exists in about a quarter of English local authorities, including Redbridge. Selective schools cream off pupils from nearby ‘comprehensive’ areas. The School Admissions Code allows all schools to be partially selective on ‘aptitude’ and those selecting on ability to continue. Increasingly schools are becoming admission authorities able to decide which children to admit.
Comprehensive Future is the campaign for fair admission policies in England. The campaign is non party political and open to all. By lobbying Government, providing evidence, informing the media and supporting local campaigns on admissions we aim to bring about a comprehensive secondary school system in England with fair admissions criteria to all publicly funded schools, guaranteeing an equal chance to all children and an end to selection by ability and aptitude.
