the programme and speakers for the day is still being arranged
March 2018 will only be a little over a year before the next round of elections for most of our councils. We are very aware of the difficulty many councils have in attracting people to stand as Councillors and with that in mind we are getting together a wide range of contributors to look at varying aspects of this problems and they will provide ideas on how you might encourage your communities to get involved.
More will be announced shortly.

Research into localism
How and why to set up Youth Councils
A Focus on the Regeneration of Local Politics
As a young local councillor of over six years, on a socially diverse local council, I will be using this session to help councils answer the questions above. By talking about the issues we face in recruiting younger and more diverse members, drawing on experience of helping change the face of local politics in my home town, referencing case studies and presenting a case for regenerating local councils before answering any questions, I aim to leave your members with something to think about.
“Power to the People”
Structured discussion by Meena Bharadwa from “Locality”
The session will explore the future of localism; tips and tricks on how to engage with the community; empowering the community with examples of how they have worked with Parish Councils and finally discussing the challenges and how to overcome them.
What needs to be done once you have your new councillor?
A discussion with Gill Lungley and PC Stuart Baker
Pease note there is a limited capacity in workshop sessions and are allocated on a first come first served basis. If we are unable to seat you in your choice you will automatically be placed on another session and be informed.
