The North East Liberal Democrats are the regional organisation of the English Liberal Democrats. The North East Party is split into 16 geographical local parties and Liberal Youth North East. We have thousands of members in a region that stretches from the North Yorkshire Moors in the South to the Scottish border in the North.
What do we stand for?
The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity. We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity. We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.

What do we do?
The North East Liberal Democrats are a community of like minded individuals who campaign to represent the people and interests of the North East of England. We aim to make a real difference to people's lives by supporting community campaigns and delivering for local people.
In order to make a difference to people's lives we need to win elections. We fight local council, mayoral, parliamentary and European elections. We also contribute to policy development, ensuring that the North East is factored into government and party policy making process.
