The Generous Society is a new vision for a more liberal UK. It reframes the timeless values that brought us many of our most cherished freedoms for a time in our national life that is defined by division, anger, and deceit.
This is not an exhaustive list of policies. It is about defining the country liberals want to live in – the ‘good life’ and what it might look like for each individual. It is time to give everyone the best possible chance to live that life, taking away barriers to freedom, and providing support where it is most needed.
The vision was authored by Tom King, a lifelong liberal. It attempts to capture the views of a wider group of Liberal Democrat members and supporters, who provided ideas and strengthened the text.
