Campaigning safely this May

Following the issuing of new UK Government advice the local Labour Party has revised how it will be campaigning this May. These changes are designed to keep our campaigners and you safe at this difficult time.

To help we will be:

  • focussing our efforts on telephone canvassing. You can find details of our Dialogue sessions at https://events.labour.org.uk
  • using professional deliverers to distribute leaflets – particularly before April 12. When our volunteers deliver to your home they will be in teams of no more than two, social distanced and masked. 
  • Reducing the size of our usual doorstep canvassing teams to a maximum of six. Before April 12 we will be leafletting before sessions to give people a chance to indicate if they don’t wish us to call. After that our volunteers will be socially distanced, masked and sanitising between each house.

All of our activists will have downloaded the NHS app and have it activated before starting. We will be working with Canterbury City Council to formalise whether we will be running an operation on polling day. We will only do this if it safe to do so.
