By joining your local community council you can make a real difference to your neighbourhood, meet new people, learn new skills and take action on issues that local residents raise. Everyone has something to offer regardless of experience, interests and backgrounds. Anyone 16 or over and on the electoral register can join.
A new video clip has been added to the Neighbourhood Partnership website which provides an insight into what’s involved in being a community council member and how community councils can make a difference.
