Who are the Dudley, Stourbridge and Halesowen Liberal Democrats?
We are your local branch of the Liberal Democrats.
We are a band of dedicated individuals pledged to keep liberal, democratic values flourishing locally, nationally and internationally; to promote greater equality, environmentalism and to fight for the people of Dudley, Stourbridge and Halesowen. We care about community-based local politics, and we work hard to get individual Liberal Democrats elected to all levels of Government, with a focus on Dudley Council especially. Our aim is to keep in touch with the local communities through residents' surveys and by distributing our local "Focus" leaflets, not just at election time but all year round.
We cover four Parliamentary constituencies:
- Dudley North;
- Dudley South;
- Stourbridge; and
- Halesowen and Rowley Regis.
Or, in terms of local government, we cover:
- the whole of Dudley Borough, apart from Coseley East ward; and
- three wards in Sandwell Borough: Rowley, Blackheath; and Cradley Heath & Old Hill.
We need your help to campaign and provide a liberal choice for Dudley, Stourbridge and Halesowen.

The Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.
Tolerant means diverse, compassionate and generous. We will always fight injustice and stand up for the underdog, the outsider, the individual, the minority and the vulnerable against the powerful.
United means we will always put the interests of the whole United Kingdom first. We reject the divisions in society, whether between young and old, urban and rural, leave and remain, or between regions and nations. We believe we are stronger - as communities, as a country and as a world - when we work together in our common interest.
We believe in Opportunity. That everyone, no matter what your background, should have the same chance in life. We want to fight injustice, reduce inequality and break down the barriers that hold people back, whether it is in schools, the workplace or anywhere people are denied a fair chance.
That starts with a strong and stable economy, fit for the long-term, without which we can't have a strong NHS, good schools and decent public services, and without those creating opportunity is impossible. We are the only party that combines economic competence with a plan for strong public services and an optimistic vision for a Britain that is open, tolerant and united.
