    Follow Us


    The Landworkers’ Alliance is a democratic, member-led union. We are constituted as a non-for-profit, co-operative, company limited by guarantee.
    We have members across the UK and work wherever we can to support the needs of members at a local level and build our collective power by bringing members together to work on the issues that are important to them.
    The LWA is growing fast and so working groups and structures at the local level change quickly. If you are a member who wants to get more involved contact us and we will direct you to local groups, coordinators and working groups.
    As a member-led union we encourage active participation of members at whatever level they want to work at. To further this we organise trainings and events at which people can get involved. Visit the events page for more information about upcoming events and opportunities.
    For more information about our organising structure have a look at How the LWA works: A Handbook for Members.

    Coordinating Group

    The Coordinating group is composed of up to 12 Directors who are elected from the membership by the membership at the Annual General Meeting. They are responsible for coordinating the strategic, financial, governance and political work of the organisation.
    The Coordinating group aims to represent a balance of sectors, branches and regions whilst maintaining gender parity, a range of ages and inclusion.

    Branches and Regions

    The membership of the LWA is organised into branches and regions, each with an organising team of members who develop local networks through socials, communications and peer to peer learning. Find out more about our England, Scotland a Wales branches.

    Sectoral groups

    We are working on supporting sector based organising. At the moment the Woodland and Forestry sectoral group are actively working to take the lead on organising forestry and woodland related events and activities.

    Identity Groups

    The LWA supports identity-based organising for members who are marginalised in landwork and wider society.
    We currently have an LGBTQIA+ working group (called Out On The Land) and a BPOC (Black and People of Colour) working group (called REAL). If you are a member and would like to join either of these groups, please email

    Organisers’ Assembly

    At the Organisers’ Assembly, we bring together member delegates from regions & branches, sectors and working groups to learn from each other’s work, discuss how to strengthen our internal organising, and share perspectives on the LWA’s direction of travel

    FLAME – the youth arm of the LWA

    FLAME is made up of young people who believe that the way we produce food and eat it can be a solution to creating a better world. They believe that everybody should have access to nutritious, safe and affordable food. Some of them have grown up on family farms and some are now pursuing careers in farming, forestry, food preparation or land based crafts. Some are ecologists, health care workers, artists, community organisers. All of them are activists in our own way believing that food and land are are important.
