Reasons to Join the Liberal Democrats Today


Join now

There are lots of reasons to join the Liberal Democrats.

Right now thousands of you want to send a message on June 8th, and do what you can to moderate Theresa May's right wing policies.

Some people join because they wanted to stand up for our values, of openness, tolerance and unity. Some join because they want to help their community and help win local elections, others so they could stand for election themselves.

Becoming a Liberal Democrat will let you do all that - and much more besides. We hold regular local social events and, as a member, you’ll have the power to change things. All our members from Tim Farron right down to our newest member get the same vote.

They're what’s driving our party's fight back and they will ensure that Britain always has strong, liberal voices, working to build an open, tolerant and united Britain.

How much does membership cost?

Membership starts at £12 a year - but we hope that you might consider donating a little more to our local party later. Unlike the Tories, we don’t rely on a small number of super-wealthy donors and unlike the Labour party, we don’t rely on the trade unions.

You can join online by paying with either a credit/debit card or direct debit, it’s up to you, you can choose your preferred method when you join:

We also have a few concessionary rates too, students can join us for £1 for their first year of membership.

And if you’re under 26 and ore are entitled to receive state benefits (other than the state pension or child benefit) then membership starts from just £6 a year.

Everything we do relies on funds from our dedicated members and your membership fee goes a long way to making sure we’re ready and able to fight and win elections and keeps our party running too.

Is there a minimum age I have to be to join?

There are no age restrictions to join the party.
