Llafur was formed in 1970 to promote and popularise the knowledge and study of all aspects of people’s history in Wales.

Our aims include the following:

  • Bringing together those interested in the history of the working class and its organisations, unions, co-operative societies or political bodies
  • Publishing an annual journal – Llafur
  • Promoting people’s history by working with other groups and organisations
  • Encouraging, helping, organising and developing such interest throughout the labour movement in Wales
