Getting Involved

If our democratic system is to flourish, it is vital that people are active in the parties they support.  National parties are an essential component of British political life and local party organisations are, in turn, an essential part of local politics.  If people don’t join, the political parties will not be able to select candidates locally. They will also be less representative of your views, and less able to reflect them in local councils, at Westminster or at the European parliament. 


The three main national parties are the Conservatives, the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats.
