Liberty is both a non-profit company that employs staff and runs campaigns, and a democratically-run membership association.

We also work closely with a charity called the Civil Liberties Trust.

Liberty Executive Committee

From its members, the Council elects an Executive Committee, which meets at least eight times a year. It is responsible for the strategic direction, financial and other governance of Liberty. In addition, the Executive Committee appoints a Treasurer each year at their first meeting following Liberty’s Annual General Meeting.

Policy Council

Liberty’s Policy Council meets three times per year and is responsible for policy-setting between Annual General Meetings.

The Council is made up of 30 Liberty members. Each year, 15 members are elected to serve for two years. New Council members take office immediately following the AGM.

The deadline for nominating members to stand for election to the Council was 5.00 pm, Wednesday 9 March 2016.  


Previous AGM resolutions and Council elections

The AGM is an opportunity for Liberty members to debate key issues in relation to Liberty’s policy agenda, and to shape our priorities in the year ahead.

The Civil Liberties Trust

Liberty works closely with the Civil Liberties Trust (CLT), a registered charity. The CLT has no staff, but commissions Liberty to conduct charitable work such as providing public advice and information.

It is important that the CLT exists as the division between the two organisations enables us to pursue all the work necessary to protect and promote civil liberties and human rights, including, crucially, our political campaigning.
