Get Involved

Come along to our next meeting

We hold regular friendly meetings for members, supporters and anyone and everyone who is interested in Green issues.

Details of our next meeting are displayed on this page.

If you have any questions about the venue and or agenda please contact Jill Perry at jbpgreenparty@gmail.com  

Join the Green Party

As a member of the Green Party you can choose to be as active or inactive as you care to be. This may mean you never leave the armchair or take on a quiet supportive role. Or it could mean helping with campaigns and even standing as a candidate for election. So go on, take the plunge - Join us today.

Enjoy an Allerdale & Copeland Green Party Event!

Are you a new member, supporter, or volunteer interested in finding out more about the party? 

Allerdale & Copeland Greens are an active party with regular events from meetings to marches. Whether or not you are a member you will be made most welcome, so do come along.

Attend Party Conference

Conference is the place where you can directly influence policy and have your voice heard. You get to exercise your democratic right to shape the Green Party.

The Green Party is democratic, allowing all members to participate in policy-making and running the Party by holding elections for all committees at Conference. Policy is developed outside Conference by members drafting motions either to create new policies or to amend existing policies. Any Party member may vote at Conference, so long as they have registered. Nominations, hustings and elections for committees are held at Autumn Conference, with by-elections held for any vacancies at Spring Conference. 

Geoff Smith Memorial Fund
In memory of Geoff Smith, the founder member of our local Green Party, we have set up the Geoff Smith Memorial Fund to help those who could not otherwise afford to attend a Green Party Spring or Autumn Conference. Applications can be made to the Committee via the local party secretary at least two months before the Conference takes place, with details of what funding is needed. Applicants will be informed of the resulting decision within three weeks.

Stand for Election

We have stood for elections in the area in the last few years. As yet we have no Green Party councillors on the County Council or local Borough Councils. Nor are there any Green Members of Parliament in Cumbria or a Green MEP.  But we aim to change this.  

So we need lots of enthusiastic, committed and hard-working candidates. We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates. 

Candidates must be paid-up members of the Green Party and support its main aims and policies.

Volunteer

Even if you don't want to make the commitment of joining us, we always welcome supporters and volunteers. As a volunteer you may wish to help with our campaigning work. Could you help deliver leaflets to your street? Or go out with our campaign team and speak to local residents about their concerns?

Do you have fundraising experience or web design, press, research and administrative skills?  Whatever your level of experience and however much or little time you can give, we would love to hear from you.

Contact Jill Perry at jbpgreenparty@gmail.com for more information about ways you can get involved.
