Volunteering opportunities

As Liberal Democrats, volunteering is in our blood. We use our fantastic central Manchester office to provide regular phone banking support to Liberal Democrats fighting for their communities across Britain.

If you come in and help us on a Thursday night (6-8pm) you’ll be guaranteed a smiley welcome, a biscuit, brew, and a chance to help some brilliant Lib Dem community champions get elected. If you want to volunteer, but Thursday night is not for you, just let us know. Every bit of help we get helps us campaign to win in more seats. You can make the difference and make new friends on the way.

For more information, contact Ed (ed.stephenson@aldc.org) or call 0161 212 1012.
