The Scottish National Party is a democratic, left-of-centre political party committed to Scottish independence. It aims to
create a just, caring and enterprising society in the mainstream of modern Europe by releasing Scotland's full potential as
an independent nation.
The SNP was founded in 1934 and scored its first parliamentary success at Westminster when Dr Robert McIntyre won the
Motherwell by-election in 1945. The Party has had continuous parliamentary representation since 1967 and has made enormous
electoral progress in recent years, providing our parliamentarians and councillors with a platform to reach an increasing
number of voters and convince them of the benefits of Independence.
Of equal importance are the ordinary party members, on whom we rely to raise funds, campaign at local level, debate and
determine the policy and direction of the party at Annual Conference and National Council and to help deliver the Independence
message at every opportunity.
