About Us

Welcome to Dumfries and Galloway Conservative & Unionist Association.     

We are a voluntary organisation which is solely funded by local party membership, subscriptions, donations and fund raising events.   We are open to all and everyone is welcome to join us or attend our campaigning or social events.  We support the Scottish Conservative Party in a number of different ways

  • campaigning on our beliefs
  • organising and attending events both political and social
  • providing new ideas to help make our area an even better place to live
  • working hard to ensure we elect more Conservatives to represent this area

The Dumfries & Galloway Conservative & Unionist Association fights hard to ensure that Scottish Conservatives are elected to office from local Government to Westminster.  We actively campaign to increase our share of the vote, spread our message and win seats.  We also champion the issues most important to the people of this area and campaign at all levels to bring about the change which is needed.

We are the patriotic party of the Scottish centre right which stands for freedom, enterprise, community and equality of opportunity.  We are a party that believes Scotland contributes to much to the United Kingdom and benefits so much in return.

Locally we are champions of individual choice meaning we believe that people and not the state make the decisions that are best for themselves, their families and their communities.

We stand for personal responsibility, we believe that people must take responsibility for the decisions they make and bear the consequences if they break the law.  Freedom cannot exist without responsibility and respect for the rule of law.

We hold a passionate belief in localism.  In this area we are constantly fighting to give more powers to our communities as we believe that decisions should be made as close to the people as possible.  Big Government stifles local action.  We believe in re empowering local communities.

We believe that taxes should be kept low and that hardworking people should be able to keep more of the money they earn.   We believe in prioritising family bills rather than allowing Government to run them up.

As Conservatives we believe in Government that is strong in its guarantee of security, freedom and civil liberties but limited in its size, cost and ability to interfere in the day to day lives of individuals, families and businesses.

This is an exciting time for ~Conservatives in this area.  Our Association presents many opportunities for the Conservatives who represent you to tell their story of delivering change for ordinary hard working people here.

We are always looking for potential candidates.  If you are interested in knowing more about representing your local area let us know by emailing us on castle.douglas@dg-conservatives.org.uk
