Local Fabian Societies
Our Local Fabian Societies are at the heart of the Fabian Society. They provide a platform for informed debate and discussion of political issues across the UK.
Check our Local Societies page to find out where there is a local society in your area and contact the local convener to find our more about getting involved.
Alternatively, if there is no local society near you, you could set one up. Please contact Deborah Stoate, our Local Societies officer to find out more about how you can get involved.
The society no longer accepts applications for unpaid internships, however there are a number of opportunities to volunteer with us.
At our major public events like New Year Conference, Summer Conference and Labour Party Conference there are opportunities for you to volunteer with the Society as a steward. You’ll get free entry to the event and the chance to be intimately involved in the running of high-profile political events.
We also offer one to two week volunteer placements in the weeks leading up to major events, to support our final preparations and enable you to lead a team of volunteers. Appeals for support will be forthcoming ahead of events, but please contact Head of Partnerships and Events Olly Parker to register your interest in volunteering.
Additionally, we are interested to hear from people who want to become long-term volunteers, particularly if you have specific skills such as marketing, web-editing, proof-reading, copy-editing or graphic design. Volunteering can range from a few hours a month to one day a week.
The Young Fabians are actively seeking volunteers to support their activities. Please contact the relevant executive committee member for more information. Visit www.youngfabians.org.uk to find out more about how you can get involved.
