We administer and raise funds for a number of grant schemes to help Liberal Democrats campaign. In 2016/17, we distributed over £130,000. Our grant and fund schemes include: G8, ALDC Fighting Fund, local by-election fast track grant, volunteer by-election phone bank, start-up grants and our ALDC local election appeal fund.
We provide ideas and inspiration to aid your campaigning on local and national issues. Whether you’re after a web story, council motion or an infographic; our regular campaign ideas will provide you with the necessary tips, guidance and resources to use for your local campaigning. Keep an eye on our weekly member email, Local Campaigner, where we feature our latest campaign ideas.
ALDC members can get hold of their own free website to support their online campaigning and talking to voters. You can tailor your site to your needs and time; use it to its full blogging potential, or simply as an online business card. You can choose to use it as a personal website or to represent your ward or local campaign team.
We have a library containing hundreds of different resources which we add to on a weekly basis and feature in our weekly member email, Local Campaigner. It also houses practical items such as logos and fonts; resources for agents, membership secretaries and to help keep your council group on the right track. It’s for ALDC members only, searchable and is split into six categories. See this page’s featured resources feed for the most relevant and recently produced resources.
