The Haringey Local Campaign Forum is opening up applications from members for the approved Councillor Candidate Panel for the 2022 local elections.
You will find the documents you need to complete for your application. We also strongly advise you to read the other documents that are available here.
If you are considering applying, please read the following documents which will give you an idea of what is involved and what qualities, skills and knowledge Councillors require:
- Becoming a Labour Councillor
- Be a Councillor (LGA)
- Being an Effective Ward Councillor
- Haringey LCF Contract with Councillors (for information only, not for completion by applicants)
- Job description and person specification
It would also be useful for you to attend any Council meetings open to the public, if you haven’t already done so, you can find these on the Haringey Council website.
Another useful way of finding out about the work of local Councillors is to watch the videos of past Haringey Council meetings. You will find them on this page of Haringey Council’s website.
We also suggest that it would be very helpful for you to familiarise yourself with Appendix 4 of the current Labour Party Rule Book.
Please also consider coming to our ‘Being a councillor’ sessions. These are as follows:
The sessions will be:
For all members Sunday July 18th at 4pm
For BAME members Sunday July 25th at 4pm

Please indicate in your email whether there are times when you would be unable to attend for an interview. Please also say if you have any access requirements or if you require any of the documentation on the website to be supplied to you in an alternative format. The interviews will be held on Zoom.
