The Freedom Association is a non-partisan, centre-right, libertarian pressure group. We believe in the freedom of the individual in all aspects of life to as great an extent as possible. As such, we seek to challenge all erosion of civil liberties and campaign in support of individual liberty and freedom of expression.

All of the work it undertakes falls within the following Seven Principles of a Free Society: Individual Freedom, Personal & Family Responsibility, The Rule of Law, Limited Government, Free Market Economy, National Parliamentary Democracy, and Strong National Defences. 

We would be delighted to welcome you as a member. Membership is just £30 a year (£20 for seniors, and £5 for students). Additional membership benefits include discounts to events and a regular monthly e-magazine only available to members. 

Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. Please help us fight to keep it alive.
