A cluster of Liberal Democrat balloons.

Congleton Liberal Democrats provide an open, liberal voice for your community. As a party, we believe in power being vested where it makes a difference - championing the voice of local councils and local people. We believe that it is the duty of the state, whether it is the national government or your parish council, to enable all citizens to foster creativity, embrace diversity, and contribute fully to their local communities.

At the local level, we campaign on practical issues that make a difference, whether it is local planning, bus routes, the unitary authority, or so much more. We are always open to hear from you on what is most important to you, so please get in touch with us if you have a cause that should be championed. We will always seek to help where we can.

Our Party is growing - we continue to attract increasing numbers of new party members, and new supporters. The 2019 General Election saw us increase our share of the public vote to 11.5% from 7.4% in the previous General Election. The 2019 European Elections and Local Elections saw Liberal Democrats making gains in both seats won and our share of the vote.

As Liberal Democrats we are working for cleaner, caring and connected communities. We believe in full transparency, meaningful public consultations and local decision-making wherever possible. We believe in proper funding of public services. If you also believe in these things and want a different way of doing things then join us at www.libdems.org.uk/join-local

We look forward to meeting you.

    People who have every right to live in the UK were wrongly denied access to NHS treatment, housing and other services simply because they don't have the right documents to prove it. Many were wrongfully detained and even deported.

    We need urgent action from the Home Secretary to dismantle the Hostile Environment altogether

    Lib Dems: Govt must act to prevent people falling into destitution

    Responding to the Prime Minister's most recent update on the coronavirus, Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:


    "People cannot wait any longer for news about what they will have to live on if they lose their jobs. Few businesses are in a position to "stand by their workers" when their income stream has collapsed. This is about putting food on the table."

    I'm so proud of our movement.

    On Monday, I emailed asking members to pause their normal campaigning and prioritise community action to help those affected by coronavirus. Since then I've been overwhelmed by the response.

    Day in, day out, Liberal Democrats all over the country do all they can for their communities. But now, when it counts more than ever, you're stepping up to protect the most vulnerable in our society. I couldn't be prouder to be a Liberal Democrat today.

    Lib Dems set up Coronavirus Community Taskforce

    Yesterday Acting Leader Ed Davey set up a Coronavirus Community Taskforce to coordinate Liberal Democrat councillors' members, activists and supporters in their response to the Coronavirus crisis in their communities.

    The Coronavirus crisis is leaving the most vulnerable in our communities at risk. People across the country are rightly worried about their loved ones, with many more keen to do something to help.

    As the coronavirus crisis continues, people are understandably becoming increasingly worried.

    This is likely to be a tough and frightening time for many people. It is vital we all take this incredibly seriously, follow the advice being given, and pull together as a country during this difficult period.

    Being told to stay home is all well and good. But what about those who don't have a roof over their heads to self-isolate under?

    These are vulnerable people. Many homeless people struggle with mental health or addiction issues

    There's no doubt that this is a deeply concerning time. I support all evidence-led efforts to minimise the impact of COVID-19. The models released this week make clear that self-isolation is a key intervention, but not everyone can self-isolate. There are reports that the police might get the power to arrest anyone with the virus found outside. I'm really worried as to what this would mean to people who have nowhere else to go - Britain's homeless.

    Following careful consideration of the latest health advice and risks, the Federal Board has tonight decided to cancel our federal conference this weekend.

    It's not a decision that was taken lightly as conference plays a key role in our democratic party as well as being an important training and information exchange event. However, the health of our members and supporters, the staff who work on conference and the wider public is far more important.

    Over the last week, Liberal Democrat MPs have been introducing seven Bills that tackle challenges facing women and girls in the UK and beyond.

    Today I'm tabling my Bill, which would prohibit anti-abortion protests within 150 metres of abortion clinics:

    My Bill will protect all women, all over the country, from harassment and intimidation.
