An update on our procedure for dealing with complaints of sexual harassment

The Labour Party takes complaints of sexual harassment very seriously. We understand that for those who have experienced sexual harassment, coming forward can be extremely difficult. We are continually reviewing our procedures to ensure that the process for making a complaint is suitable and as easy as possible.

I'm writing to let you know that we've launched an external support line operated by Rape Crisis UK, which can be used as the first step in our sexual harassment procedure. The support line is for anyone who has been affected by sexual harassment within the Labour Party, and provides emotional support and advice about how to make a complaint to the party. It is completely external to the Party and anything discussed will only be passed to the party with explicit consent from the caller.

The support line is available Monday to Friday from 10am and 6pm on 020 8683 3311.

For more information about the support line and our sexual harassment procedure please visit: https://labour.org.uk/about/sexual-harassment-policy/

I am really pleased that we are able to offer an independent element as an addition to our existing procedure for dealing with complaints of sexual harassment. I hope it will help those who have had experiences of this nature to come forward and get any support they need.

General Secretary of the Labour Party
