About us

We are Island Labour.

We want to build a Britain that works for the many, not the few. That means building the homes we need to rent and buy, keeping our communities safe, giving our schools the funding they need, and restoring the NHS to its place as the envy of the world.


Where did it all begin? What have we done since? Here you can find out all about our history and how we ended up where we are! (This is a work in progress!)

1919 – The Isle of Wight Labour Party is formed

some missing history…

2017 – June. Island Labour received a historic 17,121 votes in the General Election, moving into second place for the first time since 1970, receiving our highest number of votes since 1959 and getting our highest share of the vote since 1966.

Next? Who knows? With the possibility of the Isle of Wight becoming two Parliamentary seats, anything could happen…
