The Local Labour Party has a number for Forums which members and supporters can join.

Forums are groups for party members which are organised as part of the Brighton Hove and District Labour Party for sections of the membership. They are primarily for people that self-define as a member of that group but often welcome allies to their events and campaigns. They get an observer seat on the local party executive and are linked to national groups around the country.
