Who we are
Liberty is also known as the National Council for Civil Liberties. Founded in 1934, we are a cross party, non-party membership organisation at the heart of the movement for fundamental rights and freedoms in the UK.
We promote the values of individual human dignity, equal treatment and fairness as the foundations of a democratic society.
Liberty is entirely independent. We’re not affiliated with any political party and we receive no Government funding – which means we’re free to fearlessly and robustly criticise Government policy and truly hold the powerful to account. We promote the values of equality, dignity, fairness and accountability in all that we do.
What we do
Liberty campaigns to protect basic rights and freedoms through the courts, in Parliament and in the wider community. We do this through a combination of public campaigning, test case litigation, parliamentary work, policy analysis and the provision of free advice and information.
