Liberal Democrats

Help Make Policy

The Liberal Democrats are not like other parties. Our members decide our policy. Their experience and understanding helps ensure we have the very best policies that matter to ordinary people.

That's why, unlike the other parties, Liberal Democrat members can vote on all policy at our Party Conferences. No proposal can become Lib Dem policy until Conference has voted for it - and our members can even put forward their own proposals, which carry the same weight as any other ideas from our MPs or spokespeople.

If you want to help write Lib Dem policy, become a member today!

There are a number of ways that you can get involved in making policy:

  • Submit motions and amendments to conference
  • Join working groups
  • Respond to policy consultations (individually or with your local party)
