Here are some of the ways that you could help:
One of the simplest ways to get our message out to people is to stick a leaflet through their letterbox telling them about what's going on and what we stand for. Our regular leaflets make sure people are informed about the key issues and know how to get in contact with their local Lib Dem team if they need our help.
If you have just an hour a month spare to deliver leaflets along a street or two near your home then it would be a massive help and make a real difference to our campaign.
Writing for the website
Nobody's impressed by a website where the last update was posted months ago. Keeping it up to date is very important and very easy if you have a little free time each week.
There are lots of places where we can find good stories for the website (such as the national Lib Dem website) but what we need are people with the time to sit down and post them on the website for us or, better yet, to write their own stories for us.
If you did this you wouldn't just be helping our website look good - you'd also be keeping local people informed about what's going on and some of what you write will probably end up in leaflets being delivered direct to people's doors!
Talking to voters
One of the best ways to persuade people to support us is by talking to them. Either over the phone or in person, there's no substitute for a five minute conversation explaining what we stand for and why or asking people about what issues matter to them personally.
Becoming a social media ambassador
Being active and accessible on social media is incredibly important to make sure that our messages get out to local people. Helping us by updating our facebook page and twitter account or sharing our posts with others can make a real difference and doesn't have to take up too much time.
Helping with video/graphic design
If a picture says a thousand words then a video or an informative graphic can have even more impact. They're great ways of spreading our message in ways people will pay attention to.
Helping in the office
You can't run a good campaign without good organisation behind it. Whether that be making sure information from talking to voters is recorded properly, putting letters in envelopes or just taking the time to write thank you cards to our supporters, it's all vital work.
The best part is it's great fun to do in a group where you can chat and drink tea while you work.
Showing your support
Even if you can't do anything else, one of the simplest and easiest ways to help us is to show your support at election time by letting us display a poster in your window or in your garden.
We know that if other people see that their neighbours are supporting us then they're more likely to support us themselves. So showing a poster doesn't cost you anything, is very simple but can make a real difference.
