Joining Plaid Cymru – The Party of Wales
Plaid Cymru is the political party for people who want to see Wales succeed. We’re the only party that’s based in Wales and will always prioritise the interests of her people. Our members are the beating heart of the party, responsible for setting the party’s direction and fulfilling our mission. Here you can find useful information if you’re thinking about joining.
Why should I join?
Plaid Cymru is working to build a prosperous, socially just Wales where everyone can fulfill their ambitions. If you agree with our vision you can join up and be part of an united team that’s working to move Wales forward.
Members vote on the party’s policies during our Annual Conference, which takes place in October and play a part in turning our vision into reality on the campaign trail.
Members who want to take a more direct or visible role can stand for election for internal posts and stand for election for Assembly, Westminster and council elections.
How much is it and where does my money go?
Standard membership starts from £3 a month. We have a scheme for people who are in a position to pay more – click here for information about the benefits involved with joining Triban. Membership is only £12 per year for those with an income lower than £15,000.
Unlike the British parties, we don’t rely on a small number of hugely wealthy donors. We rely on funds from our members and your membership fee will go towards ensuring that the party’s message is heard and winning elections. This money is vital for ensuring Wales’s interests are represented at all levels of government.
I’m signing up! What happens next?
We’ll send you a membership pack in the post shortly after you sign up which will include information about how the party works and your all-important membership card. Welcome aboard!
If you’ve got more questions you’d like to ask before you join, feel free to email us your questions or call 02920 472272. You can also join over the phone if you prefer.
