7 core Lib Dem Values

These 7 Core Values were voted on in October 2021 at the Party Conference by an open 1 Member, 1 Vote process (and should be read in conjunction with the inspiring Vision in the Preamble to the Constitution) 

Liberty

The right of individuals to make their own decisions about how they live their lives, as long as they do not cause harm to others; our aim is to empower and support individuals to pursue their dreams, to make the most of their talents and to live their lives as they wish.

Equality

Without which true liberty cannot be realised, which requires an active state to: ensure that no one is held back by poverty, poor health, or discrimination, including on the basis of personal characteristics or beliefs; provide access to education or training, and other public services, including a welfare safety net; and guarantee that everyone enjoys equality before the law.

Democracy

Through which every citizen is empowered to make their voice heard, without being dominated by entrenched interests or the power of money; checks and balances, so that those in power cannot abuse their positions for personal gain or political advantage; and a plurality of views, where no individual or organisation is deterred from speaking truth to power.

Community

Support for a diverse range of organisations that enable individuals to join together in the pursuit of common goals or activities; and the decentralisation of political and economic power to local government and the nations and regions of the UK.

Human rights

Providing, defending and promoting equal legal rights for everyone to pursue their lives according to their abilities, wishes and means, with no discrimination on the basis of religion or belief, gender, sexuality, age, ethnicity, disability, or minority status in their country of birth or permanent residency.

Internationalism

Support for a fairer and more equal, tolerant and connected world and collaboration with the UK's neighbours - including, ultimately, rejoining the EU - in guaranteeing peace and security, tackling the climate and nature emergencies, standing up to corporate power and spreading prosperity around the world

Environmentalism

Acting at home and internationally to promote environmentally sustainable means of production and consumption and living in harmony with nature.
