This election is crucial to the future of our country. The Liberal Democrats nationally are campaigning to:
- Tackle the Climate Emergency by generating 80% of our electricity from renewables by 2030 and insulating all low-income homes by 2025.
- Build a Fairer Economy by providing free childcare from 9 months and giving every adult £10,000 to spend on skills & training throughout their lives.
- Give every child the best start in life by recruiting 20,000 more teachers as part of an extra £10 billion a year for schools.
- Transform our mental health services by treating mental health with the same urgency as physical health.
- Stop Brexit and invest the £50 billion Remain Bonus in public services and tackling inequality.
