Thank you for all your support for the Women’s Equality Party in Hackney. We love your commitment and enthusiasm for our political goals, and value your time to make change happen.
To help grow our voice and push for equality in our political system, we are growing our volunteer branch team and need you! As well as being an important cause, this is a great way to develop new skills and build your personal or professional CV.

Manage social media (Facebook & Twitter) in line with central office guidance maintaining WE voice.
Account keeping, final decision on spending of funds, compliance (Electoral Commission, central office), risk assessments.
Create Your Own Role:
These 4 roles are the minimum required to maintain a branch, but WE want more people on the leadership team. Additional roles you may want to create includes secretary, events lead, fundraising lead or anything you want to sink your teeth into. The more the merrier!
Remember: you don’t need to be experienced in running local political party branches (quite niche!) but you should have an appetite and a bit of free time for making gender equality a reality, and some of the skills needed for each role. We’d love to hear from you!
WE encourage anyone to apply to run as co-leads for any of these roles. Being part of the branch leadership team means that you get to decide on what the branch does and how WE do it. You also have a closer link with Head Office and additional opportunities and regular updates with what is happening at the core of the Party. All descriptions and time commitments are guidelines only, these can change e.g. during election mode. Please let us know if you’d like further clarification or fancy a chat about any of the roles, by contacting us on the branch email.
