Local Action – the handy guide for communities working with councillors
Community groups and organisations have an important role to play in influencing policies, decisions, and services, particularly those that affect the most marginalised and disadvantaged. Councillors, as representatives of local people, are natural allies in achieving many of our goals.
This guide looks at real examples of how community groups can work with councillors, setting this in the context of the changing role of both community groups and local councillors in local democracy. It includes a series of case studies and top tips to help community groups collaborate with their local councillors.
