Your Council Needs You
Do you want to make a difference to your community? Are you interested in becoming a Town Councillor? Parish and Town Councils have legal powers to take action if they chose to do so and can play a vital role in representing the interests of their local community.
Councils need Councillors with a broad range of skills and experience, not necessarily with a high standard of education or a profession. Skills gained through raising a family, volunteering or being active in the community can be just as valuable.
Good communication and organisational skills, the ability to work as part of a team and an ability to engage with the local community are important skills for a Councillor.
You can be a Councillor as long as you are:
