Who is your councillor?
Everyone in the country has a local councillor. Who is yours? To find out, type your post code into this website.
So you know who your councillor is. Now what?
Got an issue that’s bugging you? If there is a problem in your area that you think needs fixing, you can write to your councillor and ask what they’re doing about it. Remember councillors have limited time and resources, so if you can suggest a solution to the problem, put that in the letter too. Is there any way you can help?
Want to invite your councillor to speak? If you feel you’d like to know more about what your councillors are doing for your community, why not invite them to give a talk? You could get people together at your local school or youth club to ask your councillor questions and suggest ideas for problems they should be working on.
