Being a councillor - open to all

Have you ever wondered how you represent your community within local Government?

Working with and for your fellow residents to help improve the area in which you live and solve local issues?

Did you think that someone like you couldn't be a councillor?

It might look like that, but we are trying to make a difference, and over the next year, we hope to reach out to groups across the district who are currently under-represented in our councils.

All the events we run will be not political; Council officers organise them and, therefore, have no political bias. It doesn't matter what party you would choose to represent or if you are independent; we aim to make being a councillor open to all.

On June 1, we will be running a webinar for Women in Politics, you can find out more here, and as soon as we have dates for new events, we will link to them here.

At our events, we hope that we will be able to answer as many of your questions as possible. 

However, we know that many of these should be simple and easy to find out, so we've listed some of the questions we feel everyone should have the answers to on our FAQ page!
