Pledges to curb immigration and tackle the social care crisis are at the heart of the Conservative manifesto that aims to build a 'fairer' Britain.
Speaking at the manifesto launch in Halifax, Theresa May said her manifesto is "upfront and honest" about the five key challenges that the UK must overcome.
She said Britain must build a strong economy, get a good Brexit deal, tackle social division and respond to challenges of an ageing society and fast-changing technology.
In a plea to the nation, she said: ""So join me on this journey. Come with me as I lead Britain. Strengthen my hand as I fight for Britain and stand with me as I deliver for Britain."

Mrs May also vowed to provide strong leadership as she takes Britain out of the EU's single market and regains control over the UK's borders.
In the foreword, Mrs May said: "The next five years are the most challenging that Britain has faced in my lifetime.
"Brexit will define us: our place in the world, our economic security and our future prosperity.
"Now more than ever, Britain needs a strong and stable government to get the best deal for our country."
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn slammed the Conservative manifesto and accused Theresa May’s of “attacking older people” and damaging social care.
He said: “This is a manifesto that will make the situation across Britain worse on top of what this coalition and Conservative government have already done.”
