Local Action – the handy guide for communities working with councillors

20 October 2010

Local Action: publication

Urban Forum and bassac have published Local Action – a 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.
